family tree shocks

icWales - Rooting through family tree reveals shocks:
"Because one in five who research their ancestors on the internet – perhaps propelled by the notion they will discover a royal connection or aristocratic distant cousin – find illegitimate children, a new study shows.

And there’s more where that came from, especially if you live in Wales, which comes joint second in a league table charting which region has the most scandals.

A convicted criminal is uncovered by 7%,
6% discover secret adoptions
or that their parents or grandparents were not married,
while 14% discover someone who has forsaken the family name."
