I am new to this group. I am looking for help in understanding material
on the Internet that may connect my current research on BLANKFORT to other
lines and spellings of the surname.
I'm not sure of the language(s) used, but there are some genealogies that
appear on the Internet and seem to trace an evolution of surnames >from
BLANCKENFOIRT in 1438 through BLANCKENVOERTS, BLANCKENVOERT, BLANCKEVOERT,
BLANCKEFORDT, BLANCKEFOERT, BLANCKVOERT, BLANCKFORT, BLANKVOORT, to BLANKFORT
and BLANCFORT in 1696 and 1710.
I am researching BLANKFORT >from Lithuania and the United States (NY, NJ) and
would appreciate anyone who can shed some light on the contents of these
I also have a couple of references to Sephardic names and places in Spain
where BLANCAFORT or BLANQUEFORT were used.
