About us

Canadian Anusim Genealogy Website -

According to history, the Sephardic Jews were forced to leave Spain and Portugal during the Spanish Inquisition. Many made their way to France, especially the southern part of France, known as Bayonne and Bordeaux. During the early 1600's some of the Anusim (Jews forced to convert to Catholocism) who fled to France, ended up immigrating to New France, now known as Canada, seeking a life without persecution.

The objective of this project is to prove the theory as stated above. As we prove our theory we would like to link ourselves through the Canadian Anusim surnames, places of origin and DNA to other Anusim and Jewish families. Thus, reestablishing family ties that were lost in the Jewish diaspora.
