Greetings.
You might be a missing link to our family history. The Gardunos in Nambe, New Mexico and Salida,Colorado have been here for at least two centuries. All my older relative insist we are "Spanish." They say we are not Mexican. Who knows? But, our family had to have come through Mexico into the very isolated land of Northern New Mexico. I have been told some of the way we deal with our church, which I did not grow up in, uses some of the same rituals as the Jewish religion. Genetic scientists have tried to disprove the theory that we are Jews seeking asylum away from Mexico during the 1600' and 1700's. I would make total sense. But, our genetics are closer to the average Spaniard - such as 10 percent Sephardic blood and mostly Spanish with a little Native American usually on the Maternal side. I would love to meet you, or talk to you. My mother can give so much more information. I was raised outside the culture. However, something the re searcher's haven't thought is that the Jews were the first settlers of Spain, and that doesn't mean with all the centuries of mixing we would be more Spanish blood - but Judaism is not only genetic: it is also a tradition.
