I know that Samhain is a time to remember and honor our ancestors. But I don't really have any to honor. I know very little about my family and heritage. And those that I did know were not good people. My family has been made up of drunks, addicts, rapests and catholics for the last 200 years as far as I know. These are not people I wish to honor or even be assosicated with.
How can I honor the past without attaching myself to such negative people?

You have ancestors just not ones you care to honor, surely every single person in your family cannot have been a horrible person.
As a Catholic I do have to express some dismay that you seem to equate being Catholic with being a drunk, or an addict, or a rapist. That seems a very similar mindset to those who equate being Wiccan with evil devil worshippers.
