There are two groups of people who are pretty unshockable after decades in the field — priests and genealogists.
Another genealogist sent information this morn about a child born when the mother was 44. She said, “Change-of-life baby.”
I said, “Maybe. Or maybe an illegimate grandchild being passed off as a child.”
That’s harder to do these days, but it was not unheard of in earlier years. But these days, a momma can still pass off one man’s baby as another man’s child, if she’s lucky enough to have everyone avoid DNA testing. 🙂
But priests and genealogists have heard it all before.
