Re: Juedes or Judes w/the umlat

In Reply to: Juedes or Judes w/the umlat by Becky Martin of 143

The use of the umlaut over the "u" in Jude suggests your family may have Yiddish or German Jewish origins because it is a Yiddish word meaning Jew in English. Does your family currently or previously have any Jewish connections?

Regards,

Mr. Jude
