Gerry Beyer at the Wills, Trusts and Estates Prof Blog posted last week about a very intriguing new tech startup: I-Postmortem.
I-Postmortem runs two services. The first, I-Tomb, costs $50 annually, and lets you create a virtual cemetery. You can upload photos, videos, etc., and create a multimedia memorial online. You can visit I-Tomb now and see the various “gravesites” that have been created.
I-Memorial, on the other hand, lets you create your own virtual memorial, including organizing messages for your loved ones for after you die. You can include funeral and burial instructions, and upload information on insurance policies and investments. This package costs $120 per year.
For those who like to plan, or who have far-flung families, these can be very valid options. Provide you can get over the squeamishness of them.
