'being jewish' is inherited by one's mother. if you could find out if your grandfather's mother was jewish- then yes, you have jewish roots.
if you know where your grandfather was from it would be easier to get more info.
good luck on the rest of your search

I'm not sure about his dob or place, we have no records and I don't know if it possible to find. The reason is that he leaved (and I think was born) till WWII in the Western part of Ukraine which was probably under Russia or Poland in 1903? So I don't know were to look for records, but we know that his parents or grandparents had moved there from current Belorussia region. His wife name was Ustina Shumakovich, 1905-1955. I don't know if you have access to my family tree, their children are listed there. My grandpa never came back from WWII, his dod or place is unknown. Don't know if it'll help anything to you but I appreciate all your efforts.

Thank you very much.
