fair hair #ukraine

My sister and I have (had) red hair and freckles but not very light
skin. It is said it came >from grandmothers on both sides. It was not
looked on as as a good thing to be red headed in, at least, the early
20th century. It could be because it may not have come >from the best
linage, perhaps even rape. However, many of the Jews of Khazaria were
red heads. The Ukraine is a likely location for immigration of those
Jews after the fall of the Khazar state.

Information on the Jews of Khazaria:
