Miriam,

This is certainly a documented fact. See if you can rent a PBS series on
video and DVD called "Civilization: History and the Jews". The series
covers the Diaspora of the Jews including the expulsion of the Jews from
Spain.

You can also learn about this event in books or on the Internet. Try a
search in Google for "expulsion of Jews >from Spain". Here are two sites
that I found that might interest you.

Regards,

Andrew

There is an ongoing myth in my family that we are descended >from
Sefardim who migrated east after 1492 and wound up in Central and
Eastern Europe. Is there any documentation for such a phenomenon?
