Sad, really. I wonder if what was seen in the research file made your cousin ignore you. You know it is that same story that I get sometimes in my own family about me leaving some things be, but if I am to do research then I cannot leave everything alone. I believe that there is a lot of things within family, and just because I happen to find out does not mean that I tend to do harm to anyone. Yes, much of what I do research especially on the personal stuff, I do keep on files and it will not harm others. When it comes to some things, I try not to list them. Hey what can I say about anyone: my father had three women whom he never married but had a child by each; my own mom was still married and with three grown daughters when i came along; some of the other folks have gone through more things than that. I had a cousin who passed for white, and another cousin who now even in her 60s is in a mental institution. Yet, of course I will not put the cousin out there because of that, but on the family tree she will be listed. Good luck.
