LEIVERMANN a Jewish surname?

Surnames: Leivermann,Hoen, Schwartz, Ewigmann
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.

Well, I have, but I'm not sure how that can help me. I very rarely come across any religious proof.

If you can find a ship's manifest it may list religion. Also, are there any censuses for your country which may ask for details of religion? If you had any relatives in Germany in 1938/9,they would have completed a census showing whether each of their grandparents were Jewish.

whatever documentation you have from germany must say if they spoke german or yiddish etc. Is it a church record ?it must give parents'names and witnesees etc
what exactly do you have.....

you didn't give us full names ,dob, l ocations etc to do a census search etc for you.

from a superficial look there are lievermanns in census that appear to be german ....
