My family are conversos. Albeit I am of the Salazar family of southern New Mexico and not out of the San Louis Valley.

And I am the first generation to not be Jewish because my father's generation is the first generation to marry past a second cousin by which the Jewish blood was assured.

Of course when I say first generation to not be Jewish I'm referring to the boys, because the children of my Aunts continue the bloodline.
