One of the items in the Mormon microfilm rolls being discussed is titled
"Blankenfeld Revisionslisten 1797-1811". As one whose ancestors include
Blankfelds and possibly Blankenfelds, I would like to know where this town was
or is. If anyone knows, please tell me. Thank you.

<The other one is tough. The closest word is kamasz which means gaiter.
Maybe it was colloguial based on a type of person.>

My suspicion is that 'kamasz' is a Polish root, but a with Yiddish
corruption. I haven't
found my "Joy of Yiddish" (Rosten) right now, but someone may check.
"Fancy pants"
is certainly possible, but I don't know.

As a member of a jewish family, who was born and grew up in Argentina, I
can attest to the feeling of being considered odd, different, even evil.
My best friend >from accross the street was educated in a Catholic school,
and she used to tell me what the nuns said about Jews: we had tails, horns and
claws like devils, and we were not to be trusted. She argued with them to
no avail... My dad was denied admittance to a golf club because he was
Jewsish... and on and on.
It took me years of living in the USA before I was able to say without
fear, Yes, I am Jewish.

JewishGen FTJP security #latinamerica

Dear Latamsig

This message is being forwarded >from one posted to the JewishGen Discussion
Group in order to counteract some
misinformation posted to some of the SIG mailing lists last night.
---------FWD MESSAGE--------
There seems to be some significant mis-information floating
around regarding the security of data in the JewishGen online version of
the Family Tree of The Jewish People (FTJP).

The data in the JewishGen online version of the FTJP is stored
in a database. That data is NOT accessible to Internet spiders, or for
random retrieval of information.

All JewishGen databases are protected >from spiders because they
are located on a part of our web server which cannot be seen >from the
outside world -- there are no paths or mappings to them. The only way to
access the data is via our own search engine interface. Spiders and other
automated data-mining robots do not access data via search engine
interfaces -- they only access data on static web pages.

The FTJP is further protected because a JGFF researcher code and
password are required to begin using the search engine. Data in all
JewishGen databases is very well protected. Usage is carefully monitored
by our volunteers. We always know who is accessing any database, how they
are querying it, etc. We always have detailed log files of every
transaction, and can track any user back to their ISP in case of abuse.

We also have a system set up which will not allow a user to hit
any of our databases in rapid succession for very long because alarms are
generated if anything out of the ordinary occurs.

These database protection mechanisms have been in place for
quite some time. Furthermore, all the GEDCOM data submitted to the
JewishGen FTJP is first stripped of all data for living persons, using the
"100 year rule". Only the names and relationships of living persons
appear -- neither birthdates nor birthplaces nor marriage
dates/places are included.

Researchers are entitled to be concerned about the security of
their genealogical data, and its accuracy. We anticipated these concerns
when designing the new JewishGen online FTJP.

JewishGen can and will remove any submitter's data >from the
online version within in a matter of seconds, upon request of the
submitter to <ftjphelp@...>
People have already asked us to remove their data >from the FTJP, for a
variety of reasons. Security is way down at the bottom of the list of
reasons. Most data has been removed because errors were spotted in the
data and the researcher wanted it removed as quickly as possible while a
revised file was prepared.

Once informed that the data is to be removed, for whatever
reason, the FTJP Help Desk can do so in a matter of seconds.

JewishGen's FTJP is the only practical way to get family trees
up on the Web with password protection.

Can you help?
According to my modern Polish dictionary:

nauczyciel = teacher
zarzadca = administrator, manager
fabryka =factory, works, mill, plant
kupiec = merchant, tradesman, dealer

The other one is tough. The closest word is kamasz which means gaiter.
Maybe it was colloguial based on a type of person that wore fancy pants???
