Feuding Family History

The struggle family historians have in telling the bad side of our families

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?

    This is something many of us grapple with when we research our family history. I believe the stories should be told it is the how and when that I have no firm thought on for others. While I will tell some of the stories on my blog. I will not tell the worst of them in this manner. Those will go into the family history book I am writing and the family members will learn of them this way. Also as to blogs some time (at least 30 years) should have gone by, and the main characters must have died also. It is a narrow path to walk on and many people have different opinions on.
