About us

According to history, many of the Sephardic Jews left Spain and Portugal during the Inquisition and made their way to France, especially the southern part of France. During the early 1600's some of the Anusim (Jews forced to convert to Catholocism) moved to New France, now known as Canada seeking a life without persecution. The objective of the Canadian-Anusim Project is to prove this theory, linking our ourselves through surnames and DNA to other Anusim, or Sephardic Jews.
