I agree. My files are on my computer and printed out as well. When I put
them into folders by family, I include a paper copy of legal documents (I
don't have a scanner).

My family knows I've spent over 20 years on this, and if they don't want it,
they can pitch it, but they'll each have their own copy before I'm gone (if
I live long enough to complete it). I can picture no one in my family with
enough money to hire experts to read what is not on paper.
