In this video, Zerahiah ibn Yahya was mentioned as living during the 1100s. This came by way of Bing new search engine that not only provided that as a result, but gave three links (Jewish Encylopedia, Biblehub, and one other). Unfortunately, I took the result as something that was being copied word for word from those sources. However, after going back to check, it appears that while Zerahiah did exist, it wasnt during the 1100's. Instead, it was during the 1700s. I reported that error to bing. 
In the meantime, we were still able to show the influence Maimonides had on this family and the greater Sephardic community at that time and posted that info on our community page over on YouTube.
