Re: Connecting The Dots-My Jewish Ancestry #france #israel #names #records


On a prominent  wall inside the Town Hall of Taormina, Sicily, is a large map depicting towns where Jews lived on the island before 1492. My husband and I saw it when we visited his ancestral towns in Sicily in 2012. You can read my story, "One Italian's Secret Jewish History," published in the Forward in 2013. I also recommend The Forgetting River, by Doreen Carvajal (a Catholic writer who discovered her Jewish roots and history in southern Italy going 'way back).

I believe that you have Jewish ancestry. Good luck!
