    A Geneological society for finding and sharing the Black Sheep in your family tree.

    I haven't bothered looking, already assuming my background is full of drunks and horse thieves.

      some diamonds.  I started looking in the first place because of my grandmother, the very best human being I have yet to meet.
      She never said anything bad about anyone.  When pinned down over a true waste of skin and space, she hesitated, then said, "He has a lovely head of hair, now doesn't he"?  It was the closest she ever came to a criticism.
      She was a psychiatrist specializing in adolescents, and her patients adored her.  As did I.
