Additions may be made to a holographic will
Kanable v. Birch, 86 Nev. 558, 471 P.2d 237 (1970):
Randall v. Salvation Army, 100 Nev. 466, 686 P.2d 241 (1984):
In the case of In re Dumas Estate, 210 P.2d 697 (Cal. 1949), the court held that additions may be made to a holographic will, if done in the testator's handwriting, without the necessity of resigning or redating, on the theory that the old signature and date are adopted and the several writings are integrated into one document. "[I]ntegration . . . occurs when there is no reference to a distinctly extraneous document, but it is clear that two or more separate writings are intended by the testator to be his will. . . . Thus several writings, connected by sequence of thought . . . folded together . . . or physically forming one document . . . have been admitted to probate as constituting an holographic will." 210 P.2d at 700.
