1) The term 'Sephardim' today, as defined for this forum has a broader definition. It includes all Sephardic and Mizrachi communities, including Jews whose country of origin is Greece, Iran, Iraq (Babylon), Morocco, Syria, Turkey and Yemen.
2) Researchers of Sephardic genealogy are not exclusively individuals of Sephardic heritage.
