This comprehensive and up-to-date guide to the genetic origins of Ashkenazic Jews focuses on their 129 maternal haplogroups and their connections to the Middle East, North Africa, Europe, and East Asia. It definitively shows that all Ashkenazim descend both from the ancient Israelites and from converts to Judaism.
