Have Any Black Sheep in Your Family Tree?

If you research your ancestry long enough, chances are you will come across at least one black sheep of the family. They may have been imprisoned or even executed for a crime, been committed to an insane asylum or led lawmakers on a merry chase looting the high seas. It's not unusual to run into a brick wall with these individuals since many families would pretend the person didn't exist or make up a tamer story to cover up why the person no longer lived with them.
