Re: Descendants of Dutch Jews. Any interest? #general


I, too, would be interested in such a sub group. One or two in particular of my ancestors transited to the US via the Netherlands (among at least several others) and possibly stopping in Ireland on their way from France and Spain, likely from Palma de Mallorca. I have tested positive to a very high degree for Chuetas DNA (Jewish victims of the Inquisition unique to the ghetto of Palma de Mallorca). I have learned that the immigrant ancestor to the US, named Thomas Ferrier, and his wife Hester Lucky (father probably Moses), both of whom according to family tradition emigrated via Netherlands, she possibly having come there from Germany or Poland. Still, variations of both surnames (Ferrar, Luqui) are represented in the Mallorcan Jewish community that suffered during the Inquisition, and given the DNA matching result, I assume one or both of them were Chuetas. Have much interest in proving this origin or at least learning more. Another possible origin for Hester would be in or around Lutsk (Ukraine, previously Poland). -- Warren DavisĀ
