Re: Dr. Abraham Lavender's article on French Huguenot CryptoJews
http://boards.rootsweb.com/topics.religious.jewish.sephardic/50.1.1.1.1.1.1.3/mb.ashx
They have an excellent search routine of both articles and magazine backissues. The word "Huguenot" got ten hits. The exact article SEARCHING FOR CRYPTOJEWS IN FRANCE: FROM SPANISH JEWS TO FRENCH HUGUENOTS appears in the magazine HaLapid, Volume V, Spring 1997, pp. 46, whole issue downloadable as PDF.<br><br><a href="http://scjs.us/articles.php" target="_blank">http://scjs.us/articles.php</a>

Re: Ashkenazi Jewish names
http://boards.rootsweb.com/topics.religious.jewish.sephardic/645.2/mb.ashx
You will find that Ashkenazi can only trace back to late1700's or at best early 1800's. <br>However, Sephardic can trace back to 1492!<br>Many Spanish in the 1600's were welcomed into Holland. <br>I just finished with a family that went back to 1688 in Holland because they were a Sephardic family that went to Holland and married there. some names were spanish but others began with van.<br><br>Sephardic are different in that they name their children after living people.<br>Sometimes they keep carying on the maiden name of mothers like the Spanish people do.

Re: A Large Selection of Sephardic Jewish Surnames
http://boards.rootsweb.com/topics.religious.jewish.sephardic/175.21/mb.ashx
I have been researching Sephardic families that mainly went to the Ottoman Empire since 1997. I now have over 190,000 people in my file. Some are NOT Sephardic names as they married nonSephardic spouses. Some are Mizrahi (Eastern), Romanote, Ashkenazi and other surnames.<br><br>Attached is the list of names I have when I hit 190,000 in June 2015.

Re: A Large Selection of Sephardic Jewish Surnames
http://boards.rootsweb.com/topics.religious.jewish.sephardic/175.20/mb.ashx
Interesting list. Some Sephardic lineages date so far back and have become so assimilated as to be almost untraceable. This is more prevalent among people who can link to Jewish families in 1315th century Spain, where expulsion or Christianization was forced during the time that Columbus was discovering the West Indies. <br><br>Many newlyChristianized Jews migrated to Spanish colonies in the new world (e.g. Mexico) where Hernan Cortes (the guy who conquered the Aztecs) was not enforcing the Inquisition so far as the Jews were concerned.<br><br>My last name is Blanco, which is in that list. I can trace back other threads of my family tree to the 'de la Caballeria' family in Inquisitionera Spain, but the Blanco name, which I suspect may be of "marrano" origin, may be untraceable beyond a few generations.

Re: Surnames: Saenz, Sephardic
http://boards.rootsweb.com/topics.religious.jewish.sephardic/107.3.2/mb.ashx
My family ancestry in the Americas goes back to the 1600s according to the oral history of our Saenz family. One story was of a Jose Saenz that served under Commander Bernal de Galvez as a military advisor to the colonists revolt against England aka American Revolution. He was attached to the troops of General George Washington at Valley Forge. According to the story, he helped get supplies to the colonists from Nuevo España. He and his troops collected and safeguarded the delivery of stuff like beef, leather goods, weapons and clothing from the Donativo program that Spain organized to assist the American Revolution. According to records from the US Dept of Defense Library, Nuevo España funded 80% of the American Revolution and never asked for any repayment. Later, the US stabbed Mexico in the back and stole the lands that consist of today's Calif, Oregon, Nevada, Montana, Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Colorado, Oklahoma and other parts of the western states. The name Saenz may be a phonetic play on the word Zion?

Shalom alechen everyone!<br><br>I just came here to add my simple contribution and help to Brazilian descendants of Bnei Anusim or Marranos seeking detailed information about why their last names appear to be of Jewish origin. To do this, I suggest the search of this information, among other ways, through consultation and information request to my cousin, the Brazilian historian Flavius Rogério Ribeiro de Sá Cohen who is also geneticist and has the most complete specialized libraries of research on the history and the Brazilian Jewish genealogy Marrano families, new Christian, anusim or Sephardic origin.<br><br>Try to get in touch and learn about the work of Flávio Rogério Ribeiro de Sá Cohen, he is even able to track up to the Jewish ancestor, settler founder or patriarch who gave some families of Marrano origin in Brazil and Latin America.<br><br>He speaks several languages and meets all without ceremony, and that is very attentive, polite and dedicated studies working out, citing abundant bibliography. In addition, there are several research of his texts in Eng, Spanish and French, as references published by him on the Internet in Brazil, and abroad on the specific fears of Jewish origin of Portuguese families, Spanish and Latin American, not to mention he also investigates Ashkenazi family. Contact with it can be done either by facebook: Flavio Sa Cohen, and by email: <a href="mailto://sacohen@bol.com.br">sacohen@bol.com.br</a>.<br><br>All the texts found on the Internet under the title '' The Origins Sephardic Jewish family .... '' (FOLLOWED THE FAMILY NAME) are authored by Flávio, including having some unscrupulous people who requested it such studies such for example, one such called Mariel Marra and Claudimy Carneiro, had them published posing as authors thereof.<br><br>Below is a sample text of the Flávio de Sá Cohen work:<br><br>'' For Flávio Rogério Ribeiro de Sá Cohen ...<br> <br>Well observing their their surnames and Silva Barbosa, I can tell you that yes, you are descendants of Portuguese as most Brazilians. But as the origin of the strains of their last names, I can tell still very mais.Pelo Silva surname, whether it is of common origin as if el is of noble lineage origin, descended from the same members of ancient lineage romana Portuguese espanhola that the High Middle Ages married members of a Jewish descendants of the ancient lineages of King David through the Arab prince of Damascus  Syria, Abdel Raman III, the seventh Emir of Cordoba in Medieval century Spain 89 DC, which was a adnanita Arab ie, was a direct descendant of Judah or Judas Gamalah, who lived about 2000 years ago in ancient Israel and from there migrated to Saudi fleeing persecution promoted by the Romans, being also point out that Judas of Gamalah was cousin in second or third grade of Jesus of Nazareth, the paternal greatgrandparents both were brothers.<br> <br>Have Regarding your surname Barbosa it is also of Sephardic Jewish origin because Barbosa was a nickname adopted by a Nunes branch of the family who also descended from King David. And remember King David had 20 children with official wives and another hundred with secondary wives or concubines and currently there are about 85 to 100 million descendants, and between families of Portuguese origin and Spanish that connstam as descendants the Davidic line, among other people with last names like: Cardozo, Cardoso, Cardoza, Cardosa, Mattos, Amaral, Almeida, Cunha Pereira, Oliveira, Mendonça, Menezes, Souza, Sousa, Sosa, Loureiro, Figueiredo, Maia, Sa, Saa, Moura, Moorish, Gomes Ribeiro Dias, Bragança, Évora, Fernandes, Gonsalves, Goncalves, Martins, Melo, Colonel, Perez, Peres, Pires, who descended from two strains primcipais Davidic, the first through David ben Zakkai and his son Sisnando Davidez of Coimbra and Judas second to Gamalah Abdel Raman III, in addition to these there are many other, at least unas 30 to 50 more families including his Barbosa and the very popular Silva. The intertwining of families that began at the time of the Roman Empire and spread throughout the Middle Ages, was through many mixed marriages between Jews, Christians and Muslims of Jewish origin, as evidenced by the three historically the Catholic Church councils who tried in vain to prohibit such marriages.<br> <br>I managed to clarify partly doubts about the origins of their sobrenomes.Daqui to August'll send you a more detailed study on the subject. To facilitate receiving more information, you can add me on your facebook, if you prefer and desire. My facebook is Flávio Sá Cohen and the email is the same. The eternal and blessed God of Israel greatly bless you and your whole family descended from the House of David, with the blessings reserved to his people Israel, amen! Am Yisrael Chai! Baruch Ha Shem! ''

My parents last names are Sephardic jews. The original jews became "sephardic" because they called Spain "Sepharad" = Far away. My mother's last names PerezJimenez have Hebrew origin.

Seeking: ATWELL ATTWELL COLLINS England to Virginia, possible Sephardic ancestry (Inquisition escapees)
http://boards.rootsweb.com/topics.religious.jewish.sephardic/640/mb.ashx
My ancestor Thomas Attwell alias Collins was imported in 1650 to Virginia along with his wife, from England. Our family lore says that "“The Atwell family were originally from Spain, but went to England in the days of the Spanish Inquisition, and later, our branch of the family came to the United States. They were some of the first settlers of the State of Virginia (The Old Dominion). One of the Atwell boys in the pioneer days married an Indian girl (to the dismay of the family) and it was from these two that our line is descended."<br><br>Thomas Attwell alias Collins was likely illegitimate and contracted as an indentured servant. The Collins alias gave me a (farfetched) idea: that the alias was a second last name, in the Spanish tradition (retained, perhaps). Attwell could have been AlTawil (Arabic: الطويل, or “The Tall”), and Collins could have been Colina, which I’ve read is FrenchfromPortuguese; the Sephardim.com site has a family crest for Colina. I realize this is very very tenuous but a lot of Inquisition escapees did go to Portugal (rather than England, which I was surprised to hear our ancestors had gone to, as Jews were apparently banned from England during that time), and later some Portuguese “converso” merchants set up shop in London. From what I have read, in 1609 (?) a group of them who were secretly holding Jewish religious services and meeting as a community had a schism and half the community denounced the other half as cryptoJews to the authorities. They were forced to flee London. I don’t know where they went, but as far as I’m aware the ship Thomas sailed on was from London, so perhaps his family (only a generation or so before) had gone into hiding.<br><br>Anyway  I'd love to hear your thoughts  thanks so much!<br><br>Sabrina<br><br>P.S. Atwell is also spelled Attwell and Attawell. As you go back through the records the spelling gets closer to Attawell, which in turn reminds me of AlTawil.

Sizemore Jewish/Native Indian Ancestry
http://boards.rootsweb.com/topics.religious.jewish.sephardic/634/mb.ashx
the early 16th century, Bartholeme de Las Casas became the champion of the Native American Indians, devoting his lifetime to improving the conditions—in the West Indies, Peru and Guatemala. Las Casas wrote: "These Indians can bring near the redemption. If we treat them humanely in this world and convert them to Christianity, we are preparing for the redemption of the Western world in the messianic era. Their conversion is apt indeed, as I am convinced the Indians originate in Ancient Israel. Indeed, I can bring proofs from the Bible that they are of the Lost Tribes." The association of the Indians with the Lost Tribes was heard again and again. The report by Portuguese traveler Antonio Montezinos some 120 years later aroused remarkable interest. "It was a thrilling journey I took in South America. Now that I am back in Amsterdam, I must share with you some incredible news. There is a Jewish Indian tribe living beyond the mountain passes of the Andes. Indeed, I myself heard them recite the She'ma (the expression of the Jewish faith) and saw them observe the Jewish rituals.<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bartolom%C3%A9_de_las_Casas" target="_blank">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bartolom%C3%A9_de_las_Casas</a> Look for the" A New Subhaplogroup of Native American YChromosomes From the Andes" on the net..There was a Jewish Indian tribe living beyond the mountain passes of the Andes. Our NA as well as our Jewish lines may have come from the same person. From one of these Lost Tribes. This is my theory...

Re: Vargas, Varga
http://boards.rootsweb.com/topics.religious.jewish.sephardic/633.1.1.1/mb.ashx
It may likely be that the Jewish population in Hungary which uses the name VARGA adapted it in Hungary, a practice which was common, as you can see from the writings of Alexander Beider Phd (in Jewish studies) in his book, A Dictionary of Jewish Surnames<br><br><br>The great majority of European Jews took their surnames from the end of the eighteenth century to the middle of the nineteenth, when state legislation required the adoption of hereditary names. The first law was promulgated in 1787 by Emperor Joseph II and was applied to all Jews of the Habsburg Empire, most of whom lived in Galicia. Jews were free to choose their names subject to approval of Austrian officials. If a Jew had not chosen a name, one was assigned. The choice depended only on an Austrian official’s imagination.<br><br>Almost all names were based on German words. Many referred to occupations, and others designated personal qualities. The most populous category, however, consisted of artificial names drawn directly from various lexical layers of the German language and unrelated to characteristics of their first bearers. Among these were names of flora and fauna, metals and stones, natural phenomena, food, and household utensils. In many names of that group one can distinguish unmistakable ornamental elements: they are drawn from words that have positive associations. This is particularly true of names derived from adjectives: Ehrlich, Rechtschaffen, and Redlich (honest); Freundlich (friendly); Frisch (fresh); Fröhlich (happy); Geduldig (patient); Glücklich (lucky); Herzlich (warmhearted); Lieblich (charming); Superfein (topquality); and Tugendhaft (virtuous). For other names, the semantics is neutral. Derogatory names exist as well, though their proportion is small. Among the examples are Deligtisch (criminal), Geschwür (ulcer), Kaker (crapper), Harn (urine), Niemand (nobody), Affengesicht (monkey’s face), Bleichfrosch (pale frog), Schmutzbank (dirty bench), and Wanzreich (rich in bugs, or realm of bugs).<br><br>The derogatory names at the end of his list are interesting as this occurred in many countries among many ethnic groups and is thought by many to to a form of protest used when civil authorities required people to take surnames<br><br>Robert

<br><br>Zurga, Žurga, Zarga<br><br><br>Names can be traced back to name Zarraga.<br>Family name Zarraga is of Jewish  Sephardic medieval tradition.<br><br>It's roots are in Marocco (Town Dar Ben Zarga),<br><br>With coming to Iberian penisula , name was written mostly as Zarraga (also Saragga/Sarraga/Saraga  region Laredo, Spain).<br><br>On March 31, 1492  The Edict of Expulsion of the Jews was signed by Ferdinand and Isabella. Spanish inquisition expelled Jews from Spain and Portugal.<br><br>In other parts of Europe name transcription addopted to new homeland in the way to preserve original vocal pronunciation : Sirge, Sierge (Germany), England (Zurga), Zarga (Hungary), Zurga, Surga, Shurga (Bosnia), Žurga (Slovenia). (In Hungary this surname is still there today , but is not from that region by it's origin.There was strong jewish community in Hungary , but today much is forgotten , because holokaust wiped out people and much of heitage. (For example name Varga (today in Hungary and Slovenia) comes from sephardic name Vargas.) In Croatia name Žurga spread from town Čabar near Slovenian border.. Unlike Croatia , where was much hatered toward Jews from croatian Ustaši (deportation of Banja Luka and other Bosnian Jews to Jasenovac nazi camp), there were places also in Europe , where Jews could settle in peacefully, but usually in communities , where there were no synagogues and were not chased.

The Arab and Spanish cultures were the two major influences on Sephardic surnames. Spain was under Moorish Moslem rule from the 700s to the 1200s, and Jewish family names developed under the influence of Arab custom. After the Arabs were driven out of Spain, Jews made their Arabicsounding names sound more like Spanish.<br>After the Inquisition (at the end of the 15th century and throughout the 16th ) Sephardic Jews immigrated from Iberian peninsula to other countries, and their surnames came to fit the language and culture of their new homelands: Greece, Italy, Holland, France, England, Germany, Hungary, Bosnia …Throughout the medieval period in Europe, the Sephards were treated as elites among Jews. They had education and often great wealth. They traditionally had big families.<br>From the arrival of twentythree Jews in the New World in 1654 (book: A New Promised Land: A History of Jews in America), the biggest number of Jews immigrated to America in so called Century of immigration :1820 – 1924.<br>Under the threat of nazi pressure Jews also immigrated from European counties to America (South America, US), Australia, ...<br>During WWII from about nine million Jews who had resided in Europe before the Holocaust, approximately twothirds were killed.<br><br>To research ancestry also DNA testing is available today.<br>It shows specific y chromosome to person with sephardic heritage.<br><br><br>

Re: Surname: Pinto
http://boards.rootsweb.com/topics.religious.jewish.sephardic/105.5.1/mb.ashx
Shalom to distant Pinto Jewish cousins,<br>I read all the comments from several Pinto descendants. Very cool! I traced my line back to my mother's mother's father's father Frank Muccia's mother, Pintron Pinto who was born in Italy in 1850. She and her only child, Frank Muccia (b. 1862) left Italy and arrived in New York in 1888. One year later to 1889, Frank married Mary (b. 1874) in New York. Mary (unknown surname) was also from Italy. Their son, Daniel Joseph Muccia was born in 1893 in New York and married Miriam Florence Bansley. They had a daughter named Mildred Florence Muccia born in 1913 in New York. Mildred married a Dawson and gave birth to my mother, Carol Jean Collado. She and I were both born in Los Angeles and raised there. We reside in Medford, Oregon. We did suspect Jewish ancestry for many years because Jews and nonJews asked me if my mother is Jewish because she looked very Jewish. This year, I finally found our line back to my Mom's 2nd great grandmother, Pintron Pinto who turned out to be Italian Jewish. Now we understand why Jews felt that we are Jewish. It's weird, huh? We will take classes to do Torah study and catch up all that we missed out on our long hidden Jewish heritage! I would love to hear back from you !

Re: Luiz Mideiros Ladino; St Michaels Azores emigrated to New Bedford, Mass
http://boards.rootsweb.com/topics.religious.jewish.sephardic/620.2.1.1/mb.ashx
Between 1850 and 1923 (the year U.S. immigrations quotas began) more than 50% of the population left the Azores. Including almost all the Jews. The main reason for this was economic strife (and increasing antisemitism for the Jews). The Azores were a major resupply point between the old world and the new, but the clipper ship and the steam ship made continent to continent travel more practical. Anyway, most emigrants went to these locations; New Bedford, Boston, San Francisco (Hayward in the east bay and central valley towns like Gustine and Merced), Seattle, Honolulu, and New Zealand. Gustine, CA would be an especially good place to start searching. Also, many of the Jews were forced to convert to Catholicism (called conversos), but a significant number converted back after emigration. Many conversos also choose to immigrate to Amsterdam where they joined an already thriving Portuguese/Azorean Sephardic community there. So if I were looking for other relatives those would be the places I would start. Also, sadly check Yad Vashim for Holland records. That community in Holland was decimated by the Nazi's during the Holocaust, but you can often find records and testimonials to individuals and families who perished that list both family connections and places of origin. Hope this info gives you a few new leads.

Re: Luiz Mideiros Ladino; St Michaels Azores emigrated to New Bedford, Mass
http://boards.rootsweb.com/topics.religious.jewish.sephardic/620.2/mb.ashx
Not sure what you are looking for. 1st, Ladino was the language the Sephardic Jews spoke in the Azores (as well as other places). Luiz is often translated to Louis and Mideiros (most likely Mederios) is often translated to Mark in the U.S. The Azoreans (and Portuguese) did not use surnames, or any patronymic naming convention for that matter, so your immigrant ancestor must have selected a surname upon immigration. Common choices from São Miguel were Gracia/Garcia, da Costa, and Coelho (Ladino for Cohen). But it could have been something else too. FYI, New Bedford was a popular destination for Azoreans due to the whaling trade. Many males worked their passage to the U.S. and then sent money for their wives to join them. You did not say the time frame for this immigration. Perhaps you can elaborate a little more.
