Creating a list of your important documents is one beneficial way to gather a lot of information in one place. This list can lessen the burden on your family by providing them with an overview of your affairs and the documents they may need.  Be sure to  include the location of such documents so they can easily find any needed additional information.  The list should include such items as:
