New peer-reviewed study about the origins and migrations of Jewish women:
The Maternal Genetic Lineages of Ashkenazic Jews

Some key findings:
* There were at least 129 distinct mtDNA haplogroup founders and joiners in Ashkenazic communities whose haplogroups survived to modern times and possibly as many as 136.
* Ashkenazic Jews remain genetically linked to a significant degree to other types of Jewish populations, not only paternally but maternally as well. Thus, for example, mtDNA haplogroup HV1b2 is shared between Ashkenazic, Romaniote, and Mountain Jews.
* The majority of Ashkenazic mtDNA haplogroups did not originate with Italian women.
* Two of the four largest lineages, K1a9 and K2a2a1, did not originate in Europe.
* There are six K branches among Ashkenazim, not only three.
* There are three N1b branches among Ashkenazim, not only one.
* Some Ashkenazic maternal lines, such as H7j and V7a, originated with Germanic and Slavic women who converted to Judaism.
* There are some Middle Eastern mtDNA haplogroups in Ashkenazim, such as K1a9 and R0a2m, that could be Israelite lineages.
* The Ashkenazic variety of mtDNA haplogroup X2b7 is closest to Spaniards.
* The Ashkenazic variety of mtDNA haplogroup N9a3 is close to Turkic-speaking Bashkirs.
