KLEIST RFamily Frauds!

Hello KLEIST Researchers:

Have any of you run across any typed manuscripts on any of the KLEIST family lines?

The reason I am asking is that Gustave Anjou (c1863-1942, the genealogy forger, is credited as creating false KLEIST lines.

Many manuscripts do not contain an authors’ name as in the case of many of Anjous’ creations as they were commissioned by various people for their personal use. But, they are easily identified as his work and will be written from 1900 to 1940.

We have just posted our new list of the various family surnames that Anjou has forged and it now totals 305 families. More are showing up on a regular basis

KLEIST lines are included and we need to know where the manuscripts are located so we can identify which lines are affected and post the information so researchers can clean up lines they thought were valid.

You may view the list and see how to identify the manuscripts at:

This will take you to the web site where you will find the link to the Fraudulent Lineages index pages toward the bottom of the page.

You will find the list located on the index under the title More Fraudulent Lineages which is the last entry there.

The very best to you all.
