That is the way it should be but not all are aware of it.
Also, many post a nick name, misspelled name, or copy cat errors.
I heard stories from my gm and some thought she was embellishing about one line so I started doing research to prove her correct. I was 12.

Probably. When I slept with my gm she would tell bedtime stories of her childhood in AK, in CA, on a farm and various parts of Portland. Nothing boring about her "olden days".

Yes, they are. Many great books and movies are based on real people.

My mother did, and gave me a detailed chart. I might share something bad an ancestor did, but only within the family.
