Were you born with The Caul/Veil ?
I was born with a caul or veil over my face . Where any of you born with one or do you know of anyone that was born with one?

For those born behind The Veil

The birth Caul or Veil is a full face mask which may be sometimes found covering the face of a child at birth. Such births are rare and hold special significance for the child born in such a manner. There are many stories and myths about the Caul,
------------------------------
The correct name for those who are born with a Caul is a "Caulbearer." Such people are often referred to as being "born behind The Veil" as the Caul is also referred to as "The Veil" due to it being a face covering.
---------------------------------
It has been calculated that Caulbearer births may be as few as one in eighty thousand births. However this does not necessarily mean that there may be one such birth in every eighty thousand births in a particular area or that there may not be more than one in any grouping of eighty thousand births.

I also tell them that my great-grandfather was a blackface minstrel and I had a great aunt who was kept in the attic (I can spin southern gothicism in my sleep :) )
