Perhaps this might be an appropriate point at which to mention that 
the latest (August) issue of Practical Family History contains a 
two-page article on counselling for genealogists under the heading 
"Dealing with Unwelcome Discoveries".

This is fairly scathing about the recent somewhat ludicrous story in 
the D Telegraph that family historians might need counselling to deal 
with the trauma of finding their great-grandparents weren't married.

Offhand, I forget the writer's name <v.b.g.>.
