This is kind of off-topic, but perhaps someone can help me out here.
My elderly mother, who lives here in Jerusalem, grew up in a small town
in western Pennsylvania. We are moving Mother to a nursing home and came
across a video showing the fiftieth anniversary of on old schoolmate of
hers, whose surnames (birth & married) I don't know. The friend died a
few years ago. I think the husband died too.
So I asked the historical society in the town if they want the video, and
they said they do. So I mailed it a couple of weeks ago. Today I
received a "Deed of Gift" for signature. I don't know the legal
ramifications of this and don't really want to spend money asking a
Are we the "owner" who is in fact authorized to donate this? Might this
upset the friends family - if indeed she has any? Is this more
complicated than it is worth?
