Columbus claiming possession of America
The New World
Columbus Jewish Ancestry researcher Jane Francis Amler have
said that he
was a converso Jew, his background is clouded in mystery very
little is realy known about Columbus before the mid-1470s.
It has been suggested that this might have been because he
was hiding something an event in his origin or history that
he deliberately kept a secret, the issue of Columbus' 'nationality'
became an issue after the rise of nationalism, the issue was
scarcely raised until the time of the american Quadri-centenary
celebrations in 1892.
