Nope. I don't even know if my father (or my grandfather, who died long 
before I was allowed into late dinners, or my great-grand-father, who 
died before my father was 10) knew about it. I will have to ask my 
uncle... What I found in the records hints at all kind of deliciously 
scandalous happenings though.

I find it hilarious, but it might be more/too scandalous when it is in 
the direct line (especially the male line). I know some genealogists who 
just lie/erase some family tree sections when they print out family 
books for their older relatives.

And what the heck is a turf accountant?
