About Yonati "Paloma" bat Gedaliah ibn Yahya (1335-1429) #sephardic


Julio César Herrera González
 

Dear Members:
 
To acquire Portuguese nationality by Sephardic origin, I am looking for proof that Yonati "Paloma" bat Gedaliah ibn Yahya (1335-1429), born in Llerena (Badajoz), Spain, in 1335 concubine of Prince Fadrique de Castilla (1334-1358), was the mother of Leonor Enriquez of Castilla. If anyone can help me I will be enormously grateful.
 
Best regards,
 
Julio C. Herrera

I suspect you may have seen an unsourced and highly questionable family tree posted online. I think your chance of proving that lineage may be somewhere close to zero. While not legally qualified, I suspect the chances of receiving citizenship based on such a claim are even lower. 

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

Best wishes,
