    It was interesting. Vatican is releasing alot of information on the Inquisition. Including names of people prosecuted at the time. Four of my grandparent's surnames are on the list. And of course there is word of mouth on my father's side. I am waiting for my father to do his y-dna test, that will tell alot.

    It's addicting....the big mystery of our heritages.

      elsewhere? I have not seen seen that site but I will certainly check it out. Did you happen to catch the PBS special this week on the secret files? A little too heavy on production values and a bit light on the history for my taste but pretty interesting none the less.

        are trying to piece the history together on my dad's side. No one seems able to remember much. One of my great grandfather's family had a large land grant from Spain, I suspect they were conversos.

        The article I linked to talked about the PBS special, I would have wanted more history, vs. dramatized history, too.

        I am getting ahead of myself. but here is a good site to test dna:

        I used:

        But I think I am switching to familytree.

        All I can say...is...it's cool.
