Forgeries in the archives

This TNA podcast from June David Thomas talks about a variety of forgers, "the hard boiled, sad, delusional and violent." The time period covered is from Shakespeare to Noel Coward.

Although not a main part of the talk he mentions two genealogical forgers, William Franklin Horn(e) who forged records for Western PA, and Herbert Davi(e)s.

From the thin applause at the end the sessions is doesn't appear to have been well attended, which was a pity as the material is interesting. Unfortunately the illustrative material promised is not on the website. Listen here.
