hello my name is andrey or in polish andzej, Im looking for my grandfathers familly.
the thing is that they were sepperated in 1939 and i found out the story of my origins only a few years ago.
the only thing that i know that his polish name was MORDKA RUDOVICH or RUDOVIZCH.
if any one have herd about people with such family name please let me know. i have been looking for a years with out any foundings.
Thank you for your cooperation.
MORDKA: diminutive of morda (vulgar term for mouth such as yap, trap, snout, etc.). However, since you are from Israel, Mordka could have dervied from the Jewish name Mordechaj.
RUDOWICZ: patronymic, ie son of Rudy (red-haired bloke).
No other info? Maybe a city/town/village, or even county name? Any other family member names? Dates, like birth, etc.?
The largest single Mordka concentration is found in the greater Radom area south of Warsaw. A smaller pocket may be encountered in SE Poland's Tarnobrzeg area.
The main Rudowicz stronghold is western Poland's Wielkopolska region, specifically the city of Kalisz and environs.
