How does one read a mutual fund historical performance in today's economy?

I’m trying to purchase a mutual fund for an IRA. When I look at a fund’s history everything is in negative numbers due to last years crash. Some funds have a positive return "since inception" but show a negative return over 10 years or less. How can I adequately judge a funds performance when they are showing these kinds of returns?
