The struggle family historians have in telling the bad side of our families
By Michael S Sheaffer
We all have at one time or another been involved in a family disagreement that turns into a so called “feud”. They don’t always turn out to be the Hatfield & McCoys but some do end in deadly circumstances. How do we confront the issues of, domestic violence, incest,molestations and murder among our ancestors when we find these stories in old nespwapers while researching.
It’s an interesting topic that I believe is not discussed about often enough in the genealogy community. How do we present this information when we find them? Do we just keep it from our online public trees and dispose of the finds so know one will find it in our own family? What are your thoughts?
