  1. How about a sample of Belmonte Jews from eastern Portugal.

    Interestingly they descend from a formerly isolated community of crypto-Jews (Anusim/Marranos).

    It would be interesting to see if they look more Iberian or more Near Eastern.

  2. Are all inhabitants of Belmonte of cryptic Jewish ancestry or not ?


I've chosen to let people comment freely on my posts. Nevertheless, you'll lose your time taunting me and calling me a fascist (which I'm really not) : I pray you to read my introduction which will reassure that my intentions genuinely aim at achieving amateurish knowledge. I understand that you may not share my passion for the history of the peopling of the World, just don't let me know as clear conscience gained by bashing a humble documentary work is useless.
