• Online tributes: Evertalk is an app for creating memorials on Facebook. Legacy.com maintains online guest books in conjunction with newspaper obituaries, but also will host a memorial page for $49 a year. MemorialMatters.com is another fee-based site, while GoneTooSoon.org relies on donations.
• Digital legacies: Bcelebrated.com lets you post your autobiography, photos and private messages on a site “where friends and family will celebrate your life” after you’re gone; MyWonderfulLife.com lets users leave funeral instructions and pass along messages and photos.
• Digital lockers: SecureSafe.com has a fee-based “Data Inheritance” service that lets you transfer documents and passwords to beneficiaries after you die. LegacyLocker.com is a similar service.
