Looking for information on Jews in Sicily/Italy after they were expelled
from Spain in 1492 (or thereabouts).
The family story is that our ancestors, named Ruisi, originally were
Spanish Jews fleeing the Inquisition. Through the centuries, after finding
refuge in Italy/Sicily (in Sicily, their village was up in the mountains),
they intermarried and became Catholic.

Any leads on this would be most appreciated!

Thank you!
