My family has a few my great great grandfather migrated his family from Ireland to wales and changed their last name so they could come to Australia. As a result I can find all my family in Australia as its a made up surname! There are also several half aunties and uncles from both my grandfathers all over Australia!!

My mum has 2 sisters. Her youngest sister was a solo mum, and told everyone the father died in a motorbike accident.
Her other sister was married with 2 daughters, and as kids my sister always said the son was actually fathered by the other sisters husband (they look alike and have the same height) and recently yes, it's true.
The married sister always knew apparently, and accepted it, but her condition was that it was never spoken of.
That must have been so hard for her... well, all of them actually.
The married sister and her husband have now passed away.

Oh my Dads uncle was a travelling salesman with a wife and kids. When he died, another wife and children turned up at his funeral. Neither family had any clue about the other one. He'd been keeping this upfor many many years.

My VERY Catholic Nanna was born out of wedlock! She was beyond horrified when we found out. We also found out her favourite 'spinster' Aunt was actually gay, and her 'boarder' was her lover. Haha poor prudish Nan <3

I found out when my parents separated, after 26 years, that my Dad had been having numerous affairs throughout the whole marriage. One with my netball coach, my mum would come to games and stand metres away from the woman she caught him with. My mum didn't tell anyone or say anything as she wants to stay together for the sake of the children! I was so shocked and didn't speak to him for 6 months.

My Nana went out with a pilot before she met my Grandad and become pregnant out of wedlock. Her baby girl was given to another family member to be raised, so my Mum and her sisters always thought that this girl was their cousin until just before my Nana died she revealed that their cousin was actually their half sister!

My granddad grew up believing his grandparents where actually his parents and his dad was his older brother after my great grandmother, a farm hand at the time, got pregnant and did a runner when he was 2 days old. So my great great grandparents raised him as their own and never told him the truth. It was revealed until 2 years after his death. No one he couldn't understand why there was 28 years between him and his next sibling.
