¿Por qué Zamora?

Zamora es una ciudad mediada en el noroeste de España de alrededor de 60 mil habitantes. Es muy conocida por sus más de 20 iglesias románicas, su celebración de la Semana Santa y sus edificios estilo modernistas. Entre los conocedores de la cocina Gourmet, la ciudad es famosa por sus vinos y sus platos típicos castellanos. Sin embargo, hasta muy recientemente, un visitante que llegue a la Plaza Mayor en un paquete turístico nunca se hubiese imaginado que se encuentra en una de las ciudades españolas con una de las más prestigiosas historias judías de Sefarad.

Family Research

We have a member from Spain who has put together a short piece to advise people how to start researching their families. We plan eventually to have many more articles and information available in both Spanish and Hebrew, and this is a very helpful start. Now people who are surfing in Spanish will come across this.
