They decided to research and write a family history, something for their children and grandchildren. They found a specialist genealogist and writer to help them.  Only one problem arose - how to handle Great Uncle Jefferson Taylor who was executed in the electric chair. 

The writer said she could handle the story tactfully. When the book appeared the section about Jefferson read:
