Hello, fellow searchers!
Some of the members of a Sephardic family I know have identical birthmarks. At the very base of the spine, they each have a darker patch of skin shaped like a downward triangle. They call this "the mark of the Mediterranean" and say that it is common among Sephardic Jews.
Has anyone else ever heard a similar story?
