To me family history is about Genealogy. Tracing your family tree, DNA tests, finding long lost relatives
Why are posts about people's terrible relatives on here. Surely they belong on the Relationships board.
Am I wrong?

You're not wrong. People post on here by mistake.
It would be a help if MNHQ amended the topic to 'Family History Research' wouldn't it?

Yes, definitely and then more of us would post.
It's a bit baron round here.
I'm starting a new thread so might bump the topic a bit

@gabsdot45 @egontoste @Drabarni @MillyMollie - just tagging in others for any thoughts...

Genealogy is a good title. Or Family Genealogy.
Some posters think it's about family relationships when it's really to do with genealogical history.
A new apt title would put an end to the misinterpretation of this present one.

Genealogy would be perfect. Or Family Tree Research or something.
I do think a lot of people get confused and think it's about family problems dating back decades.

The history part doesn't put people off sharing their family dramas here, it the research part might!
