Wink Interesting genealogy stories

Share your stories or the stories of someone you were helping.

One i was helping with turned out to be a fraud. A whole stack of alias names and even pretended to be a doctor after stealing the papers of a real doctor. Its a real long story but in short he married around 7 times, a different name each time, a whole bunch of kids to. One wife suicided, and HE signed off on her death while pretending to be a doctor. Two other wives "disappeared" pretty much straight after they married him. We never found any trace at all on them. I personally wonder if he murdered them
A interesting search to be involved in tho he was not a nice man at all.

VAL if you read this it should be back memories for you as well,.

Nope not made up Geoff. Took a few of us many months to follow this fella from state to state. Criminal records helping us with the alias names etc.

Nah we got him in the end, dead in NSW in 1910 i think it was

Here's the link for the thread [a different forum than here] Makes interesting reading but it goes back and forth etc. Its a very long thread while we weaved our way through it.
