#52ancestors Post Twenty-Six: Black Sheep, Family Secrets, and Respect

The writing prompt for post twenty-six of #52ancestors is Black Sheep. I struggled with this one. What makes an ancestor a black sheep? Is it something they did? Or, did they just march to a different drummer?

Many of our ancestors did things they later regretted.  Those deeds are not always things they would want to be disclosed. Secrets are found in many families. Are we obligated to reveal all of those secrets?  

I will not label an ancestor a black sheep so I am going to pass on this post and respect what may have been my ancestors' wishes.
