Have You Ever?

Have you ever guessed about an answer on a form you filled out? Have you ever lied on some sort of record–particularly if the answer wasn’t really germane to the issue at hand (a wrong mother’s maiden name on a eighty-year-old mans’ death certificate is not the end of the world)?

If you’ve guessed, lied, or intentionally left something blank on a record what’s the chance that an ancestor did the same thing?
