Show Notes

Controversy surrounds the longevity and genterology world with the possible indentity fraud committed by Yvonne Calment. A recent research project has claimed that Yvonne, Jeanne Calment’s daughter, may have taken over her mother’s identity in 1934 when Jeanne possibly died. The records stats that Yvonne, aged 36, is the one who died.

Confused?

Hang in there, this story gets juicier. Photos, anecdotal stories and physical milestones (such as Jeanne’s extraordinary height in her later years) add layer upon layer to this plausible but not definite outcome that Jeanne Calment as we know her was actually her daughter, Yvonne.
