Sorry you did not like my post. The research was done by the Holy Office of the Catholic Church of Spain. This is the office that administered the inquisition. I cannot think of a better source for acuracy that the church, can you? The name was uncovered by a census of the Juderias of Spain. As far as different spelling of the name and different countries and different religions, you put that in the mix, not I. I made a statement that stands. The Rossell family of Spain has Sephardic roots. Unless you can find fact rather than opinion I have no reason to call the census by the Catholic Church a fabrication. If you are Catholic, I suggest you see your priest. I am sure he can get his hands on similiar documentation.
