In 2001, I received a "special invitation"
from Maxwell and Christina Floore of Denver, Colorado to purchase "The
Floore Yearbook"; published by The Floore Family News. A copy of the
invitation is below.
I did some digging on the internet and found there is
a 'colony' of people with the same first names - Maxwell and Christina
- at the same address, selling the same Yearbooks, using different last
names. So far I have found references to Dewater, Schnake, Stockton, Strodtbeck, Schwiesow, Maxfield, Shorb, Hinz, Sibole, Smallidge, McMasters, Elbizecht, Wollum, Hornbeck, Henchert, Shockman, Quertermous, Mobray, Gerhardstein, Shreves, Dillard, Sissom, Geiger, McConathy, Ensminger, Westerhold, Norheim, Brim and now FLOORE. I am sure there are many others. If you have been notified, please let me know - and send
me a copy of your invitation.
I wrote the Denver area BBB to inquire about this possible
scam. They sent my comments to Maxwell and Christina. They, in turn, wrote
me a letter telling me of their research into the FLOORE name since 1986
and offering to send me a copy of the yearbook for my review. When I received
the Yearbook, I found a lot of very general, and undocumented information,
most of it appeared to be listed gathered from internet sources. For example,
the Cousin records had lists of flooring suppliers and installers - hardly
It is not worth the time or the price. Buyer Beware! I have received information that these people are now out of business. But someone else will surely step up to take their places. If there is a buck to be made by fraud . . .
There was group several years ago, the Halberts, operating
out of Bath, Ohio, that offered a similar "service". It was also
just a compilation of public records and general information.
I have put copies of a few of the pages below - the Yearbook
Cover (with a family crest), the inside cover, and a few inside pages.
