comment What is a “Sephardic Jew”?
Well Michoel, your right. One site I went to said 80% another said 60% and even another said 20%. This is going to be one of those painstakingly slow processes to get accurate information. The only thing that I can confirm is that my last name (AVILA) is sephardic Jewish and that the Catholic church made those with Sephardic last names either concert to Catholicism or they deported them. Other than that, there are a lot of places that give me brief history and even more that are no longer online. The best information I have received has been from you. You have been a HUGE help to me.

Thank you VERY much Michael. I appreciate your time giving me great information. As I continued to study, I have found that where I was born (The Azores Islands) was populates with 80% Jews. I don't want to ramble, but feel like I need to learn more about my ancestors and my Jewish roots. This is AWESOME!! Thanks again :)
