I hope nobody on our list has been a victim of this genealogical fraud, but
felt that it is important to circulate the following information from
COLORADO SUES GENEALOGY COMPANY. "The suit, filed in Arapahoe County
District Court against Maxwell MacMaster and his company, Morphcorp LLC, seeks to
cease the operation and penalize him up to $2,000 per book sold, which could
amount to $300 million," according to the Denver Post.
The suit claims 150,000 people nationwide were swindled out of $49.95 each
when they bought a book with fake family histories from Morphcorp of Denver.
People who bought these genealogical "yearbooks" got the same family coat of
arms, the same family recipes and even the same family jokes, according to a
lawsuit, which was filed in late November.
Consumers with complaints regarding Morphcorp or the "Family Yearbook" may

Message Board Post:
I just found this post, and am interested in any information you are willing to share regarding Christian Lapp & Leah Meyer. If my information is correct, they had a son named William Abraham Lapp, who married Minnie Grady. One of their daughters, Ethel Louisa Lapp is my husband's mother. I have been looking for the birth place & birth date of Christian & Leah, to no avail.
If you can help me with this information, I would be most grateful.
My sincere thanks in advance.
