Re: RUDEN - Dubuque County, Iowa
I'm sure you've already gotten a bit of info in the last few years on the Rudens, but I thought I'd point you toward a very nice family publication at - http://contentdm.byu.edu/cdm4/document.php?CISOROOT=/FH17&CISOPTR=37296&REC=2http://contentdm.byu.edu/cdm4/document.php?CISOROOT=/FH17&CISOPTR=37296&REC=2
I'm researching the same family on my husband's side.His ancestor was Nicholas' sister, Elizabeth b. 1856 who married William Jacoby.
The link I provided will take you to a multi-page pdf file that has photos and will add several generations to your line, back in Luxembourg.The index for the document is in the left margin.You have to click on each section individually.There are some nice maps, copies of original documents and photos.
