In Reply to: Looking for background by Rebecca Cardinal of 6356

Rebecca, although the name, Cardinal, seems unlikely as a Jewish surname, one researcher believes it has links to the Jews of Toledo, Spain. Look here: http://home.earthlink.net/~bnahman/TOLEDOhtm.htm For general information about Iberian Jewry (i.e. Sephardic or Sefardic Jews), try these web sites: http://www.sephardicgen.com http://sephardim.com/ Family Tree DNA has a group project for gentiles who believe they are descended from Sephardic Jews: http://www.familytreedna.com/group join.aspx?code=R61894&Group=Anousim If you think your Jewish ancestors may have tried to pass as Christians so as to avoid persecution, and thus acquired the identity of Anusim (or Anousim, a Hebrew word meaning "those who were forced [to convert]")and wish to reconnect with your Jewish roots or even re-aquire a Jewish identity, look here: http://www.shavei.org//en/Community.aspx?Name=Bnei+Anousim http://www.casa-shalom.com/
