14492Re: [Genealogy Research Club] A rather strange question
- Nov 4, 2010They are family. I say include them. They made a mistake and have done/are doing their time for their crime. I would include the information on that family member. It is a part of their history regardless if it is good or bad.

I'm sure we all have some skeletons in our family closets that we'd
rather not have unearthed, but the fact remains, no matter how painful
or how much we want to disown them, they do have a way of resurfacing.
So my question is this....regarding a family member that is
incarcerated....should that info be included in the family tree? Maybe
not all of the details such as the offense, etc. but the name and
location of the facility, the DC number and such. I mean, when a person
enters prison, they basically fall off the face of the earth until
either their release or their death, and maybe years now the road, this
info would help the next researcher. I just wanted your opinion on this
delicate matter and how is the best way to handle the information.
Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
