I'm starting to document the personal property we own in case we need to file a insurance claim for a total loss. I don't have any idea what type of documentation my insurance company would require. I've googled around and haven't come up with a good answer.

I don't have any idea what type of documentation my insurance company would require. I've googled around and haven't come up with a good answer.
