Most people doing genealogy research are always hoping they discover something grand and royal about their ancestors and past family history so they can brag about it to their hearts content. However, what if you discovered or uncovered something dubious about an ancestor or family past event, would you be inclined to share that research result with other family members? Or, would you rather not share that result?
I have a Revolutionary veteran in my genealogy, imagine how disappointed i was when I came across the fact that he owned a slave. This was in New Jersey, and he was a deacon in the baptist church for many years until his death. I do not know if he out lived the slave, or whether he freed him at his death. This is something I continue to research and hope it can somehow have a happy ending. I have not told any of my family about this hidden fact, not even a cousin doing research...
