Ah, that tricky "n" at the end of the last name. "--man" is quite often Jewish. "--mann" is rarely.
Raquel was suggested by Emily from Chicago.
I read your write up on Henry Winkler and the lack of Jewish monuments. Well, I happen to be a stone sculptor, stone carver etc. My business can be seen at www.goldnerstoneworks.com. Attached is a photo of a Jewish sculpture I carved called "Mount Marxmore" it is carved in a 4800lb block of granite -- enjoy!
DNA shows that today's Jews from the largest group, the eight million Ashkenazim – most of whom once found their home in central and eastern Europe, and who now represent the majority of American Jews – have few grandmothers. Around half descend from just four women who bear mitochondrial types found almost exclusively in that population. Two million trace their descent from just one of those ancient predecessors.
