And of course the answer to that question will be posted in the Anna Anderson Claims thread, right? On account of it isn't about DNA.

List of legal cases decided by mtDNA testing like AA's. Legal precedence proving the DNA test on AA WOULD hold up in court!

If there were lawyers involved, they would use court cases to prove or disprove a point they were making. You can place a hundred more examples on this thread that support your case AWF, and, a lawyer could post a hundred examples that would support AA's case.

None of this is going into court.

Why?

AA is dead and and the Romanovs are happy with the DNA reports.

If this long lost child of AA's pops up and makes a claim, then we'd see this in a court.

Until then, we're just amateur sleuths posting now and then with various opinions on what we've read, seen or experienced.

And this amateur sleuth is still hovering over the problem of "chain of custody", which does cause doubts, in this case.

Anna wasn't Franziska. Because Anna appeared in Berlin weeks before Franziska disappeared.

Hang on. Wasn't there DNA testing that said Anna was Franziska ? So that means the DNA testing was fake.

Hang on. Didn't the DNA testing also say Anna wasn't Anastasia ? The DNA testing saying Anna was Franziska was fake. So why wouldn't the DNA testing saying Anna wasn't Anastasia also be fake.

You're having a lend of us.

Wrong. FS wasn't reported missing immediately as people are sometimes not even today. Her family lived many miles away, and there were no cell phones and email to keep in constant contact. So it took the people she was boarding with a little while to figure out she hadn't just run off, and contact her family. This does NOT mean they were accounted for at the same time. They were not.

No it wasn't. Many reputable doctors and scientists were involved, including Peter Gill and Terry Melton. I have spoken to Melton myself.

The 1994 DNA tests not only said AA wasn't Anastasia and matched FS's family, but recent discoveries in 2007 of the last two missing bodies and further DNA testing in 2008 have proven all of the royal family are now accounted for, dead in Ekaterinburg in 1918. The DNA is not 'fake'. If you knew the whole story, you would know this is true. If you are really interested in the truth and not an entertaining conspiracy theory, I could give you some links to educate yourself on the matter so you could understand and know for sure. Are you?

And how do you know this?
And what about Felix, who stated that his birthday card from Franzisca arrived 8 to 14 days late? His birthday was on February 17th. And Franzisca excused her tardiness with having had too much work.

Oh, Chat, there's no proof that card even existed, or when it was sent or when it arrived. Also you can't expect the mail was as rapid as it is today. You're talking about a ravaged, destitute postwar city in the middle of political turmoil, and even more rioting and unrest in outlying areas. Who knows how long it would take a letter to arrive in Pomerania from Berlin in 1920? But mainly, it doesn't matter, because the question of AA's identity is now over. Also, this is OT to this thread, "DNA and the law." Remember, the AA's claim thread was closed to to repetition, and here it goes again...

No, there is no proof. Only Felix Schanzkowsky's recollection of it.

Obviously, you don't know German "gründlichkeit" very well. There is also no proof that Felix was in Pomerania at the time.

No, the identity question is not over. DNA has only established a maternal relationship to the Schanzkowskis, not that AA was FS.

So.... What are we all to make of this latest development in DNA research?

From the New York Times:

DNA Evidence Can Be Fabricated, Scientists Show

By Andrew Pollack
Published: August 17, 2009

Scientists in Israel have demonstrated that it is possible to fabricate DNA evidence, undermining the credibility of what has been considered the gold standard of proof in criminal cases.

The scientists fabricated blood and saliva samples containing DNA from a person other than the donor of the blood and saliva. They also showed that if they had access to a DNA profile in a database, they could construct a sample of DNA to match that profile without obtaining any tissue from that person.

“You can just engineer a crime scene,” said Dan Frumkin, lead author of the paper, which has been published online by the journal Forensic Science International: Genetics. “Any biology undergraduate could perform this.”...

I expected one of you claimant supporters to grab onto this. However, you didn't understand the whole story. There are two reasons this does not mean a thing in the cases of our claimants:

1. It can't be fabricated unless you have the original there to copy, such as a person in custody, or a record of his DNA from a criminal database- the thing they are worried about is crooked police departments who have a suspect in custody taking DNA from him, duplicating it and planting it at the scene of the crime to frame him. You cannot duplicate what you do not already have.

2.Since no nuclear DNA samples existed from the children when they were alive to compare to the bones of the royal children, there is no way the DNA patterns found by the scientists in the bones could have been invented or made up. They can only be copied, such as from a database, and since there was nothing to copy, it couldn't have happened. Sorry.

Scientists in Israel prove DNA can be fabricated - 8/18/09 - San Francisco News - abc7news.com

There is a test that can be done which proves which DNA is real and which is faked so no one is ever going to be able to get away with it. The news story is about criminal cases only, there is nothing about identity or paternity.

Sorry guys, the torch for "Anna Anderson was Anastasia" has been well and truly extinguished and we are not going to reopen the subject.
