Southwest Hispanics Find Link to Sephardic Jews

New DNA evidence has produced some surprising links between Hispanics living the America's Southwest and Sephardic Jews who fled the Inquisition 400 years ago.

The evidence has clarified some questions that residents of the area have had about their families, such as why family members refused to travel on Saturdays and followed unusual cooking customs. The answer seems to be that settlers of the area may have been Jews fleeing persecution in Spain. "The pieces of the puzzle start falling into place," said Bernadette Gonzalez after learning about new historic and DNA studies.
