Re: "Let sleeping dogs lie."
In Response To: "Let sleeping dogs lie." ()

Sometimes the person that wakes up and spills the beans will come from out of left field.

In my experience, it was a distant cousin that was researching their side of the family and just so happened to find a ton of information about my side of the family.

He knew all the "secrets" from my side of the family and told them willingly. Until I told him that this was all new to me, he had NO idea that I didn't know about an aunt's child that was really the child of my great grandparents. Or, two cousins that spent more than a few years in jail.

In those days it was not unusual at all for people to raise the child of a daughter as their own. And, it was a "secret" if someone in the family was in jail.

These days are so different ~ this generation is much more open and honest.
