> Probably the best thing you can do is let the next of kin know that you have a will and either give them a copy or tell them what your wishes are. Then put a copy of the will where it can easily be found (such as in your desk drawer). My wife and I are redoing our will and are letting our sons and my brothers know what we are planning. They all will know where to look for the official copy of the will.

Yes, I would say so.  In addition, it seems strange to name a person as executor without telling that person.  It seems better to tell (or rather, ask) first.  Then you don’t have to worry about imposing a duty on someone that he’s not willing (or, perhaps, able) to accept, and it also solves the problem of others knowing there exists a will.
