My first Borges ancestor dates back to mid 1500's Magdalena de Evora Borges from Icod de los Vinos in Tenerife, Canary Islands....obviously she had come from Evora, Portugal. Check out: http://www.sephardim.com/namelist.shtml?mode=form&from=B... One tale-tell sign of their Jewishness (believe it or not) is their very Christian given names. This they would do to demonstrate their changing to the Christian religion. So I have on my line, names like: Christobal, Rosario, Sacramento, Luz, etc etc..... Silvia
