  1. Don’t understand
    I am member of a jewish family of more than 6 centuries of age, relatively famous, and, if I found the names of others branches of my ancestors, there is nobody of my family name.

    We moved from Spain to Portugal to Italia (L’eghorn and Venice) and Tunisia then France.

    Do you have any idea why ?
