The Ashkenazi Jews established themselves across much of east-central Europe, the Sephardic branch arrived in Iberia. Jews heavily migrated towards parts of Europe during medieval times.

Ashkenazis and Sephardis are genetically similar despite not being from the same regions. They didn't mix much with their host countries.

They definitely did mix with Europeans though. Just look at their haplogroup data and also their frequency of light eyes and light hair.

I voted just for the fun - Askhenazes has as a rule more european "blood" than Sepharades - even in every group they are not homogenous, too complicated history -
but I like play

According to Coon's "The races of Europe" (if that study is irrelevant please let me know) of 1939 Ashkenazis have a higher frequency of light hair and eyes than south Italians but a lower frequency of said features than north Italians.

Coon is hardly a proof of anything.

Alright, thanks, I wasn't sure if he was or wasn't.

The only serious Anthropologist (Coon wasn't a serious one) who had studied both Italians and Jews was John Beddoe. You can find his book "The races of Britain", with full list of obserbed frequencies for light eyes/hair, on the internetwebz.

I've found the book with the many charts on eye and hair colour but they're upside down so I can't read them.
