(http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/History/Diaspora.html) This link gives
a very brief overview of the Jewish Diaspora during the first century.

I am a double Villarreal from my father's side of the family, with surnames
of Trevino, Elizondo and others attached to me. One of my male cousins did
the DNA test...and like others have said....it appears we have the Jewish link.

When I brought this subject up to my aunt, she said that she knew all along.
In fact, a Torah was found in one of the ancestral homes..in between the
adobe walls...in Coahuila (Villarreal and Trevinos had come from Nuevo Leon
around 1830). Is this true, or family folklore...I will never know. But she did
not deny our Jewish ancestry.

My grandmother was the only person in the whole town who declared herself a
Protestant in the census. I wonder if this was her way of somehow rebelling
against the Catholic Church...guess I will never really know.

Esperanza... the Sephardic story in Mexico makes from some great socio cultural analysis. Just like your Torah story... Monterrey is filled with many Crypto-Jewish traditions that have faded into the Mainstream Mexican cultural fold... things like Cabrito, Flour Tortillas, and the various Sweets are without a doubt foods of Middle Eastern origin that filtered to modern Mexican culture.

Hola Primo ,I do not dismiss the fact ,that there are or were Sephadic influences in Mexico. In the northern part if Mexico is more arid and wheat requires less water than corn,smaller animals such as sheep or goats need less land and food to survive . I believe these factors relate to such examples you mentioned.These are my opinions and guesses.

Primo... you bring up some great points... but you still have to wonder why tribes like the Seri, Pima, Yaqui & Tarahumara who live in very arid Northern regions still rely on corn as their primary grain... and often raise pigs quite successfully. But I do agree that there are many communities in the North that have adapted Wheat & Goats for economic reasons independent (or at least indirectly influenced) of Sephardic traditions.
