Perhaps we should investigate the work of another genealogist with "special" additions to the Colonial lines: Julius Billiter? He affects many of the Swiss and Germanic lines, here and on ancestry.com. I would like to know if Billiter worked with Anjou. I do know that JWG did travel to Switzerland once per year during the years he was brokering "false genealogies", 1880 to 1920.
So far we have Fake or Prtened Profiles:
And, Fictional Genealogy:
And, of course,
Gustav Anjou, Fraudulent Genealogist:
http://www.geni.com/projects/Fictional-Genealogy is the portal i wanted and never knew about.
The "fake" profie project to me is joke profiles (Donald duck or my sister Beyonce). That's housekeeping.
Here's a quick clip of unreliable American sources
According to American Genealogist (July 1976), the following "are so unreliable that nothing they say should be accepted without clear and unmistakable verification": Gustave Anjou, Charles H. Browning, C. A. Hoppin, Orra E. Monnette, Horatio Gates Somerby, Frederick A. Virkus and John S. Wurts.
Erica, I am all over it!!! Let's get something going, to be sure! Justin, what we are doing just doesn't cut it--especially considering where these pathways connect and don't. People are continuing to use this info and they are the ones doing all this constant merging, causing a bigger mess than we had a year ago! Many of our lines are now so strange--grandfathers that are cousins (well, a few are, these incestuous Colonials) now; the list is endless. I would like to see some stricter guidelines, or something, especially for mad-mergers and curators...
