The genealogy site is built using PhpGedView, and is configured to use a dual Jewish and Gregorian date system. For privacy reasons the site is configured to not display any information about living people.


The configuration used to protect privacy in some cases (usually due to missing data) causes people who have been dead for a long time to also be marked as private.
