    It's funny you'd ask. If one does their history lesson well, they soon find out that way back in the earlier centuries there was much persecution of the Jewish people. As a result they often relented and "converted" to so called Catholicism or many of the variants of the day. The Spanish were famous for this but overlooked one thing. Those that were forced into conversion avowed to add an "ez" onto the end of their names, very cleverly marking them for future notation. So hence those with the names "Gomez" and "Ramirez" and so forth are all Sephardic Jews. Many Romanians, Chech's Hungarians, Germans and French were originally of Jewish decent but were, through the force of the pagan churches forced into altering their faiths. My personal lineage was primarily from Kiev Ukraine and Hungary/Romania. Even the Danish and Swedish and Dutch were largely Jewish, but changed over the centuries. Remember the Tribes of Israel were scattered and went up through Europe

    How did you know you had Jewish blood?...I found out through tracing my ancestry and finding out that my grandmother's grandparents came from Pest, Hungary in the mid 1800's and I think they converted to Christianity either before or after...the Family name was Meyers/Myers which my research shows to be the Jewish variant of the German Maiers/Meiers...
