OK, they reached South America as "conversos" by the same time. But
in South America, at least, they did not _remain_.  Hispanic America
was, at least South of the Caribbean, almost completely lacking in
Jews. As to the Mexican community, Eric, do the present Jewish
communities in Mexico have any link with the early ones (of course
setting apart such issues as sentimentalism, interest in
demonstrating that Jews have "always" been present in Mexico, etc.)?
