I try to distance myself from some family members because of the same mess.

That's so petty of them...what a shame, they're using the photos as leverage and that's just sad tbh

some family members though, I have more faith in strangers..Ermm

Well, I think the stupid part about this whole situation is that my cousin claims my mother called her a liar over the location of a damn photo album.  We have lived with my grandmother since I was 5 years old, my cousin has only been up to visit maybe 4 times since I had been living there, so really.  Who is going to know where things in the house are going to be?

And really, the adult thing to do would have been to just drop it.  Not go on about who took what.  My cousin is nearly 40 years old and I just found her reaction to be extremely juvenile.  On top of that, to go run to her mother and tell her what had transpired?  Shoot, had it been the other way around and I ran and told that to my mom, my mother would have said, "That's between you and your aunt.  You need to deal with it."  There is NO WAY my mother would have called my aunt to tell her she would never speak to her again because of a disagreement I had with my aunt.

i think every family has a story like this and it's never really about the item in question.

true tatee...
however she should do the right thing and make copies of the pic's or a CD for other family members. She's too old 40--- for this type of drama.

Resentment, probably over something petty from years ago.

And this is why when my husbands great aunt was dying we dragged my printer over to her house and made a copy of every single photo and took pictures of the whole house just as she left it. No fights over stuff. Unlike mine. I had to make peace with what was done. Maybe an in-law can work on getting copies made. Somebody with no interest in the photos.

Well, things have gotten slightly better and slightly worse.  Mom couldn't let the situation go, so she wrote a long as post on my aunt's FB, trying to explain what happened between her and my cousin.  My aunt wrote back a, "no comment...." and promptly deleted the post and unfriended my mom. 

Oh, did I also mention my uncle is in the hospital, very ill?

I wrote a message to all my cousins and included this one and asked if they wanted a copy of the family tree I had been working on and I asked this cousin if she would be keen on giving me any other pictures of family she had.  She was keen to do it.  (I don't know if she WILL, but she seemed cool with it). 

I honestly don't know what the heck is going on with these three.  In some ways, I wonder if it would have been better for me to make the requests, instead of my mother--even though I have no idea what would cause them all to fly off the handle because of a simple misunderstanding.

I do agree with everyone, though.  There is more to this story than I may be aware of.

Your mother and aunt are equally entitled to that book. You and your cousin are equally not entitled to it.

However comma you, as your mothers daughter, are entitled (by GP) to "procure" that album by any means necessary and return it to your mother.

9 years....psh, I'da went to that heauxs house and got my mamas shyt back 8.75 years ago.
