The Baroness, who in addition to her business achievements, is well respected for her research and academic contributions in the areas of history and genealogy.  

This month's contribution was titled: "Spotlight on the Nasi Family at the Court of the Ottoman Empire:  Re-examining the Power of the Nasi Family", and can be found in the Spanish Surnames section.

 The article begins: "Doña Gracia (also known as Beatrice de Luna) and her family are pillars of Sephardic genealogy. Doña Gracia and her family were more than leaders, in our 21st century parlance they were “change makers” and major players on the international diplomatic and commercial stage. "To illustrate the power of this family, consider that it was able to cause the commercial boycott against the Italian port of Ancona in reprisal for its persecution of converts […]” (Diaz-Mas, 1992).  Dona Gracia and her family, despite being chased by the Inquisition, saved the lives of countless Jews under persecution. She saw it as her mission in life to help her people to freedom. It is for this reason that I want to take the time and bring to light a piece of Dona Gracia as stateswoman, and her family’s alliances, that assisted her greatly in the materialization of her great achievements.  As with any genealogy, it is important to consider the broader context and implication of the life and times of the individuals of focus, and this is a piece of the story that I believe shows the breadth and depth of this woman and her family, as well as a microcosm of the Sephardic Jewish experience of this era..."
