Ethnic and geographical origin of my direct maternal line

Hi guys!

I am talking about my direct maternal line, here, again. Now, I've got a new exact match from the same state of my mother, in Brazil, and another match with 1 step of genetic distance, from Spain. So, I've got 3 exact matches with direct maternal lines from the Azores, Portugal, 1 exact match from direct maternal line from the same state of my mother's direct maternal line, in Brazil (our lines go back to Portugal), and, 1 match from Spain, with 1 step of genetic distance.

My question is: Do you think that everything is showing that my our common ancestress was from Spain and fled to Portugal, in the 15th Century?

Observation: We've got two matches Sephardic Jews, from Libya and Tunisia, on level HVR1&HVR2.

Please, I would like hearing from you.

Thanks in advance.

Natan

That is a possible scenario.
