JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Ashkenazy ancestry of Yemenite family #general

A Yemenite family in Israel, VAKS, holds a tradition that an Ashkenazy
Jew named Vaks came to Yemen about six generations ago and married a local
Yemenite Jewess.

A number of members of the family to this day have blond hair rather than
the typical Yemenite black hair.

I am seeking a source for such an occurrence where Yemenite families are
descended >from an Ashkenazi Jew.
