As an amateur genealogist (who has helped others search their for the ancestors), you wouldn't believe (or maybe you would) how much some people will or will want the researcher to bend the "facts" to "prove" they are descended from royalty or other prominent figures.

Personally, I think the most fun searches I've done are the ones that turn up an "oops" or an unsavory character or two.
