Yes, millions of people have European ancestors that were Jewish and hid the fact. After Spain and Portugal's Inquisitions, and France, Italy, Germany, Russia and Poland's persecutions, European Jews wanted to own land and be free of special taxes and fees imposed upon them. Why don't you know? Because telling their children could have exposed them. After a few generations the knowledge was completely lost. But today it's possible to uncover the truth and it makes a great story.
