Conference Proceeding: Crossing Borders: The Transatlantic Migrations of the Nines Carvalhos Over 500 Years

This paper recounts the story of a Jewish family that started in Portugal 350 years ago this year and crossed many borders on the way to the New World - not only geographic boundaries but religious and racial ones as well. Having spent five years and travelled many miles tracing the routes the Nunes Carvalhos took, the presenters would like to share their journey of discovery and reflect on what they have learned.
