Whether by circumstance, personality or both, we will explore those interesting characters who just have to attract the attention of curious genealogists. They take us to records we often don't investigate and often leave us perplexed by the unknowable elements of their story. We'll explore a bastard child's brick wall, a whore house madam, a spy who was executed, a patrician who gambled away his fortune, a playboy and his illegitimate children, and our most notorious ax murder. Then there are those who wander from the family (and record keepers) after a falling out or to pursue an "alternative" lifestyle.
