I (22F) have recently found out that I have Jewish ancestry. I have looked back as far as 1680, and mysteriously, there are no ancestors with my family name before that. A couple of generations ago, my family started bring Christian baptised. This ancestry is on my father’s side, but he is engaged to a woman with paternal Jewish grandparents. My soon to be step sister has converted, and asked her Rabbi whether women with Jewish ancestry on their paternal sides are still rightfully Jewish – and he had said yes.
What do you guys think?
