Spanish Origin Still A Mystery Unfortunately, I do not know where in Spain my ancestors originally came from. My mother came from Iasi, Romania which was under Ottoman rule until 1862. But no records further than 1916 exist. A synagogue one time has a Sefer Torah, which came from Crete, but it was unknown where in Spain it originally came from. Reply
