Work Description

YOUR DIGITAL UNDERTAKER: Exploring Death in the Digital Age in Canada

“This book is a terrific resource for those who truly want to put their affairs in order. It is both painstakingly researched and a pleasure to read. The author uses clear diagrams, helpful checklists, periodic summaries and gentle humour to help readers understand the decisions required and make better ones as a result.” —Wanda Morris, CPA, Grey Matters' Founder, Former Chief Advocacy and Engagement Officer CARP

“Your Digital Undertaker is an exceptional estate-planning reference guide to minimizing the burdens on executors….narrated with emotional honesty and compassion. Your Digital Undertaker is a thorough and well-documented resource for navigating the complexities of settling a physical and digital estate.” —Foreword Clarion Reviews (Clarion Rating: 5 out of 5)

“A practical guide to preparatory end-of-life and post-mortem care for Canadians. Hartung’s insightful, personal approach to the somber realities of “deathcare” provides essential and motivational reading. In a book about an industry that traditionally focuses on unsentimental legalities, Hartung infuses some much-needed humanity. Her perspective will be welcomed by readers in similar situations.” —Kirkus Reviews

The goal of this book is to move the needle on the number of Canadians with a will and improve executor readiness in navigating their future role in the digital age. The world has gone digital, and so has our estates. Everyone needs a will, and in the digital age, your estate now includes your entire digital life. For the executors, let it motivate you to ask a lot more questions about your role before you get handed “digital hell in a hand basket.” This is the first book of its kind that draws the reader into the world of estate planning with a digital twist, bringing the two worlds together. For those having the challenging conversations with their parents, family members or clients, let Your Digital Undertaker ask some of the basic questions and open the door for a meaningful discussion.

Edition Notes

YOUR DIGITAL UNDERTAKER: Exploring Death in the Digital Age in Canada

Your Digital Undertaker is an exceptional estate-planning reference guide to minimizing the burdens on executors. Sharon Hartung's Your Digital Undertaker is a thorough and well-documented resource for navigating the complexities of settling a physical and digital estate.

If you are an adult Canadian who uses e-mail and surfs the internet, this book is for you. In a unique and humorous way, this former military officer and tech executive shares what she’s learned about the estate industry and the taboo topic of preparing for one’s own death. Preparing for death doesn’t need to be scary or foreboding. It can actually be liberating and energizing. Join Your Digital Undertaker in an exploration of death in the digital age in Canada, which lifts the lid on how the deathcare and estate industry works today, and tackles it through the project management and digital lens.

This exploration includes simple diagrams, easy to understand scenarios, and user options that require only a couple of mouse clicks. You’ll learn your digital life is not isolated from your physical life, as technology is the new player at the estate planning table. Cracking the code to digital death and its afterlife requires deciphering the code for your regular and physical life. By the end of this book, you should feel armed with questions and a perspective on how to tackle your digital life in the context of your overall estate.

You might even walk away inspired to get on with dealing with your will and estate plan with estate planning professionals. If you are a named executor in a will or appointed in a Power of Attorney, this book is for you as well, as it might motivate you to ask a lot more questions about your role before you get handed “digital hell in a hand basket”. For those having the challenging conversations with their parents, family members or clients, let Your Digital Undertaker ask some of the basic questions and open the door for a meaningful discussion.
