Hello,
I wanted to see if anyone, please know of the Aubin family? I want to know if the Aubin family of Haiti, have a middle eastern background. I also want to know if the Aubin family( of Jacmel) is a Jewish family that settle in haiti around the late 1800s to early 1900s. I also heard, that alot of Jewish people that lived in haiti could not show their Faith, because of the Catholic church. I also heard that if were not Catholic at that time during the 1900s, you could not go to school in haiti, so you must say the you are catholic? So, that means that the Jewish children could not go to school in haiti, if they say they were Jewish? I kind of find that heard to believe. I have some people told me that is not true at all.So can someone tell me the history of this. Thanks.
