While responding to another question, I happened to see that 13 profiles are currently linked to our category, "Gustave Anjou Fraud: http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Category:Gustave_Anjou_Fraud.  I am sure others have come upon other frauds that this voluminous fraudster committed.  The more profiles affected by his fraud that are linked to this profile, the better a picture we'll have of the immense damage he did!

You said it! And the same could be said regarding several other fraudulent genealogists for whom "Fraud" categories have been created:

  • Horatio Gates Somerby
  • Raymon Meyers Tingley
  • Albert Welles

The frauds continue, I have been trying to find out who the  supposed daughter of Lady Alicia Fleming, the daughter of the Earl Upton actually was. There is an Upton Court but no Flemings associated with it

There was no Earl  Upton as far as I can find but there is this painting of the Earl of Upton  http://artuk.org/discover/artworks/earl-of-upton-18556  (appropriate?)

Unfortunately, that page is now empty (at least it just was to me). More info about the Gustav Anjou frauds can be found here:
