  required by the laws of this state for the recording of a conveyance  of
  real  property, of all the persons beneficially interested in a trust of
  property, heretofore or hereafter created, the creater of such trust may

  trust  created  on or after September first, nineteen hundred fifty-one,
  in favor of a class of persons described only as the heirs, next of  kin
  or  distributees  (or  by any term of like import) of the creator of the
  trust does not create a beneficial interest in such persons.
    (c) A testamentary or lifetime trust wholly benefitting  one  or  more
  charitable   beneficiaries   may   be  terminated  as  provided  for  by
  subparagraph two of paragraph (c) of section 8-1.1 of this chapter.
