If you are looking for a meme in which to participate or just need a regular Sunday post, consider joining in on Black Sheep Sunday.
A few weeks ago I was contacted by a member of the International Black Sheep Society of Genealogists (IBSSG) who wanted to set up an aggregator similar to those we use here at Geneabloggers in the sidebar for Madness Monday, Tombstone Tuesday and Wordless Wednesday.
What qualifies an ancestor to be a black sheep? According to the website:
Theft of any item of fame
Membership in a famous gang, well documented
Member of the FBI’s Most Wanted List
Extreme Public Embarrassment
Involvement in Witchcraft Trials
Bigamy (outside the Mormon faith, which condoned it at one time)
Persons expelled from normal society
Convicted felons (documented)
Also, we are seeing new geneabloggers join our group due to Black Sheep Sunday and you’ll agree there can never be too many genealogy blogs, right?
