After the Spanish Inquisition, many Jews were resettled in the Canary Islands and then were asked to help settle the colony in New Orleans by the Spanish. They also went to Haiti and Mexico and beyond. I am starting to think many folks have Jewish ancestry because of this dispersion. Both sides of my husband's family likely has Jewish ancestors. There are even some Jews who settled in Ireland so I guess, I could have some Jewish blood as well. The Spanish Morales clan were known for their musical ability and they lived in Andalusia, Seville being a center until they were thrown out in the Inquisition. That area also flipped back and forth with Christians and Muslims so it is a real mix. I am not sure we will ever really find the genesis of our Morales ancestors but, it is fun trying. ;-)
