This blog is about Sephardic Jewish genealogy and history. In 1492 the Jews were expelled from Spain. They went to Portugal, Italy and the Islamic lands around the Mediterranean. The history of this small community is both fascinating and complex. They were the first globalised people. They were persecuted by the Inquisition. Some identified as Jews, some Christian, while others lost faith and embraced the Enlightenment.
