Re: TOYOS ARANDA #sephardic

Dear Ivan,

Pere Bonnin's Sangre Judia lists ARANDA as a confirmed Jewish name in a
document dated 1561 in Castilla.
You should also check SephardicGen.com < http://sephardicgen.com/ > and
Sephardim.com's < http://sephardim.com/ > name search engine for more
information.

You might want to consider doing a Y-DNA test with FamilyTreeDNA.com to
determine whom you match and their origins. As co-admin of the
IberianAshkenaz DNA Project at FamilyTreeDNA.com, we recommend 37 or 67
markers. This will help you to see the origins of the people you match.

If you need more information, feel free to write to me privately.

Best wishes

Re: location of Niederstetten ? #germany

The Niederstetten with a Jewish community is the one in
Baden-Wuerttemberg--your 2nd set of coordinates.

The first set of coordinates you give maps to Feldatal in Hessen, near
Kestrich, which had a small Jewish community.
