This is my last post on this blog.

This is my last post on this blog.

After 12 years, 2,900 posts, 11,000 published comments, and more than 8,000,000 views, I'm closing the doors on this blog.

Frankly, I can't keep up! I'm running my law practice, which thankfully survived the pandemic. I'm still editing the Mensa Canada national magazine, still chairing the wills section of the Bar Admission Course, and I have a few new writing projects on the go. In a few months, my new book about building your family tree using wills and probate records will hit the bookstores (please keep an eye out for it; I'm really excited about it!). So, there being only so many hours in a day, I had to make some choices.

This website will stay as it is for now because I am told by many, many lawyers and non-lawyers alike that they refer to it often for information. I hope the archives will be useful for those of you working on specific questions. In the near future, I will formally archive it.

Also in the near future, you will see me again on a new, different website! I'll let everyone know when it's live.

Thanks to everyone who read my posts, commented, asked questions, and phoned/emailed me to talk about things I had posted. Writing this blog has been an educational experience for me, and it has kept me in touch with thousands of readers. Hugs!

    Really sorry to see you stop: have enjoyed your comments and blogs and learned a lot over the years. My estates and wills practice has grown over the years and I found comfort in someone else working through the same problems I saw every week.
    Thank you for your valuable contribution and stay safe and healthy.

  7. Thank you Lynn for your dedication to this important aspect of the law. I have been reading this blog for years after finding it from a search I did for my Law 12 class! I bought your book The No Nonsense, Real Life Guide to Estate Planning in Canada and it was very helpful with my parents and for myself. Good luck in your next endeavor; however, I'll miss your posts! Cheryl in Vancouver

  13. Thanks for all that you do and wonderfully share on this blog. I enjoy reading every post. When my wife and I stepped up as Estate Administrators I didn't hesitate to order "How Executors Avoid Personal Liability." It was the best resource to help us through that journey. We followed your advice and guidance in that book and it made the whole process so much easier. The best advice? Set up all the accounts and spreadsheets and communicate often with the beneficiaries. I am looking forward to your next site.
