My Gr. Grandmother's surname was Leivermann and the family has always suspected she was Jewish but, married into a Catholic family. My Gr. Uncle told me they would all go to church and she would stay home, which fueled this Jewish rumor.

How can I find out if our family has Jewish roots? Is Leivermann a Jewish surname?

I believe this line originated from Germany. Coming to Minnesota around 1860.

Other surnames in that line are: Hoen, Schwartz, Ewigmann

Thank you so much.
