Liz Miller <lizdmiller@...>

Hello all,

My maiden surname is RUDERMAN. I do know that the name comes >from Ruder(Rudder) to
row as in with an oar. What I am interested in is the origin of the name. I don't
have a male relative to take a dna test. Is there anyone out there with some
suggestions? Has anyone else searched for the name Ruderman? My ancestors going
back to my ggrandparents lived in Kraisk/Kraysk/Vileika/Vilna which is now Belarus.

I appreciate any suggestions or help.
