Hello Alex Loya,thank you very much for your ptompt and kind replay, i wish my english was better to enable me share with you an additional info. on loya/loia that i found in israeli/hebrew sources. I would be more than happy if you could elaborate on the jewish branch of the loyas. is it possible that there there is any connection between the expelsion of jews on 1492 from spain trying to find a way to escape from the inquission, they converted and addopted a cristian name, and after that went to the new world? It's very intersting and i would appricate it very much if you can provide me with any additional info. on the jew branch of te loyas.
I intend to locate as many loyas in israel as i can, and pass them the amazing info in your exelent research on loya family origin.
