Is it appropriate to document family history with this: Family history is not obtainable today due to language barrier (patient speaks only Spanish).

No, you cannot. There need to be a valid documented FHx. Coding needs a substantial documented FHx to code. A translator would be required to correctly decipher the patient's problem.
