Breast Cancer Study: Many Hispanic Women Have Jewish Ancestry

I came across this older blog post recently:

Former New Mexico State Historian Dr. Stanley M. Hordes has written extensively on this, including the excellent book, “To the End of the Earth: A History of the Crypto-Jews of New Mexico.”

Hordes, who received his Ph.D. in Colonial Mexican History from Tulane University, did his doctoral dissertation on the crypto-Jewish community of Mexico in the seventeenth century. Other great books on the topic:

* “The Marrano Legacy: A Contemporary Crypto-Jewish Priest Reveals Secrets of His Double Life
* “A History of the Jews in New Mexico
* “Remnants of Crypto-Jews Among Hispanic Americans
* “Hidden Heritage: The Legacy of the Crypto-Jews
* “Secrecy and Deceit: The Religion of the Crypto-Jews
* “The Mezuzah in the Madonna’s Foot: Marranos and Other Secret Jews–A Woman Discovers Her Spiritual Heritage

Hordes heads the Society for Crypto-Judaic Studies, which promotes the research, study, and scholarship of the Jewish heritage of many Hispanics in America.
