i was very glad to find and read your conclusions bout the origin of loya family, and would like to share with you an info. about loya family in israel. my name is moti loya, here in israel we have a few undreds of loya's which most of them came to israel between 1948 and 1950, from the area of the balkan - bulgaria,greece,turkey and former jugoslavia. this peopl arrived to the balkan's from spain after they were expeld from spain in 1492 by the spanish queen "izabela la catolica" all the jews from that area [balkan] prserved and speak till this day an ancient spanish called "ladino"or "haketia" as they call it in spain.
our former president mr. itzhak navon is from this origin he established in a few universities in israel studies and research of the "ladino", in order to preserve the ladino and the culture it represents. seems that there is another branch of loya [jewish] wich came from spain, i presum you did'nt knew about this. any way i hapend to see your research about loya family and i wonder if you have any information about the jewish branch of the loya family. how the info. i provided here influanse your conclusions in your fine reaserch about the loya family.
