My aunt had bad blood with the family and she had later in life marriage to a really rich guy and his kids hated my aunt and resented she got some of "their" money. (He had been in love with my Aunt for decades, nevertheless.) Anyway she was the keeper of all family pictures and documents.
Well she was an alchie and rather infirm as an old woman and when her husband died those kids came in and threw away almost everything saying they thought it was useless and "flood damaged" "old documents" of their father. What bullshit.
