Falsehoods

There is certainly a lot of truth in this anonymous quote. Interestingly enough, it was this idea that helped to lead me to the true identity of my maternal grandfather. I had pretty much come to the conclusion that everything he ever said to my grandmother was a lie. And while it was DNA evidence that was key to finding him it was also partly my sister who got me to consider that it was unlikely he was really  telling lies about his entire life because lies (or falsehoods) are so hard to remember. It turns out that he really was from Galashiels, Selkirkshire, Scotland, and the date of birth he used with his wife and children was very close to the true one. It seems that he changed his name, and it was that which made him so hard to identify.
