Jaacob Rosen asks:
In different documents which I see I get different given names of my
ggrandmother. They are Rudel/Rudla/Ruchla. Does it make sense???

Possible answer:
While there is a Jewish feminine name Rodl, it is more likely that Rudel is
a misinterpretation of the handwriting of Ruchel where the "ch" looks like a
"d". Similarly, Rudla is really Ruchla.
