This is a re-blog of an old post from 2009. I tried to update/revise it and it went all funny, so … I’m piecing it back together.
Yes, I know, this is a strange one, but it’s a good one, and who doesn’t find a bad boy (or a bad girl) interesting?
In genealogy, it is no different – rum-runners during Prohibition, crime bosses, murderers and traitors like Al Capone, Lizzie Borden and Benedict Arnold (pictured right), respectively.
The gossip and hype that revolved around your Black sheep during their infamy – and still does, for some of them – will keep you busy looking for the facts for a while.
Good luck tracing your blacksheep!
