    I should get this although it may have been written for scholars… Specialists in ancestry tell me that I am a Iberian, descendant from people in the Iberia Peninsula, with a mingling of the three “blood lines”: Jew, Arab, and European. My ancestors were indeed expelled from the region and today there are credible publications that Spain and Portugal want to make it right to those expelled by offering them citizenship. They list the last names of the families eligible such a benefit and interestingly enough, ALMEIDA, (from the Arab Al maida, meaning a geographical Table, or the top) is one of the first last names. I wonder if my ancestors were forced to convert to Christianity because, to whoever did it, I JUST WANT TO SAY THANK YOU!
