The Writer Makes Those Decisions

That obituary for your great-uncle might have been written and paid for by his third wife. Consequently, she may choose not to mention his first wife or his son that she could not stand.

And that biography of your great-great-grandmother's half-brother may fail to mention his half-sister and he saw no reason to mention his mother's first marriage in the family history section.

The person paying for information to be published may very easily leave out that which he does not care to share with others.
