Marina Oswald unwittingly supported the existence of 2 Lee Harvey Oswalds in describing her husband's background.
An interesting cache of letters written by Marina Oswald from 1962-63 to her aunt Valya and uncle Ilya surfaced in 1991 which reveals how she referred to Oswald's "mother" as his aunt because that is how HARVEY represented her to them when he married Marina in the Soviet Union in spring of 1962.
HARVEY Oswald is the version of Lee Harvey Oswald whom Marina married. He told her that he was an orphan. Peter Vronsky, who translated the letters, editorialized that HARVEY had lied about being an orphan. John Armstrong, the author of Harvey and Lee, suggested that HARVEY was born in Hungary and quite possibly an orphan. The fake Marguerite who took care of him was perhaps an aunt or some other surrogate mother.
In all fairness, Vronsky wrote before a deluge of JFK assassination research shed light on the Oswald Project, and other aspects of Marina and HARVEY. Nonetheless, it is Armstrong who correctly ascertained the relationship between HARVEY and his surrogate mother - or caretaker as he often states it - fake Marguerite.
When the Oswalds returned to Fort Worth, Marina met the surrogate mother and continued to refer to her as HARVEY's aunt to her aunt and uncle. We believe that fake Marguerite was indeed HARVEY's aunt who was involved in some kind of intelligence operation with CIA and possibly Soviet intelligence.
The significance of this revelation is that it substantiates the distinction between LEE whose mother was Marguerite Claverie, and HARVEY who was an orphan raised by an unknown caretaker using the name Marguerite - as Armstrong concluded from his studies.
