This is a question Bullshit and Bullshitters

We've had questions about lies and liars in the past, but this time we're asking about the sort of fantasist who constantly claims they've got a helicopter in the garden or was "second onto the balcony at the Iranian Embassy siege". Tell us about the cobblers you've been told, or the complete lies you've come out with.

Thanks to dozer for the suggestion

Captain Smith
as some of you may know, Edward John Smith was captain of the ill-fated Titanic. as children, my uncle would tell us that Captain Smith was our great-great uncle. of course, we never believed him. just because the family surname happens to be Smith and that side of the family has a long-standing naval heritage, we really didn't think it was any more than coincidence-laced bullshit of the highest order.
that was then.
five years ago, one of my aunts started on our family tree. as my mother has 11 siblings and my grandparents came from large broods, it has taken some time. however, thanks to records that my aunt has found of births, marriages and deaths, it now seems extremely possible that my uncle was right all along.
bit weird, really.

This leads me to ask
did your uncle know the truth? Or was he bullshitting, as far as he knew, and this is all some massive coincidence?

told to him by a much older(and deceased by the time i was born) family member
