Mills, E., ed. (1932)-data, is it there?[edit]

I cannot find it here; but there are several names in the Ramallah-section which I do not recognise....Kafr Ein might be one of them. Huldra (talk) 23:06, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

Can you identify 'In Kafr that is listed there? On maps I only see "Kafr Ein" or "Kafr 'Ein" though. Another factoid is that it does not appear in the lists of villages in each sub-district which appeared in the Gazette every time the boundaries were changed. This suggests it was considered part of a nearby village, such as Qawarat Bani Zeid. On the other hand, the 20K cadastral map (16-16) shows a substantial built-up area and village lands for it.

Correction: it appears in the Gazette lists 1940–1945.
In the 1931 list there is In Kafr but not Kafr Ein while in the 1945 list there is Kafr Ein but not In Kafr. Hmmmmm... 00:22, 27 May 2015 (UTC)
...and In Kafr has 494 inhabitants...pretty much half-way between Kafr Ein`s 1922 number (=376) and 1945 number (=550).....I think we have a winner! Thanks.. Huldra (talk) 20:44, 27 May 2015 (UTC)
Probably, but it is hard to prove. I see "Kefr Ain" in a 1924 village list. I don't see any other mention of "In Kafr". On the way I noticed a passage about the women of "Kefr Ain" in Wilson's "Village Life", pp78–79, probably worth inclusion. Zerotalk 23:25, 27 May 2015 (UTC)
Well, I take the chance on it being this place: I cannot see what else it could be. As for Wilson, 1906, pp. 78-79; I believe he refers to females of the Barghouti-family (of which there undoubtedly also were some in Kafr Ein), but not about the women of the village generally. Btw, he writes much the same as Stuart Macalister, 1905, p. 255: I wonder if he more or less copied him? Huldra (talk) 20:34, 28 May 2015 (UTC)
