Looking For Ancestry? Try Looking in the Bible… No Kidding


Is your surname Wroten, Rothen, Roten, Rotin, Roden or any of the many versions of that sounding name? “Rotenu”, is the name the Egyptians gave to the tribes living near the Dead Sea, who were the children of Lot “Lotan”. Lot was the nephew of Abraham. In the bible, in the “Book of Numbers”, there are many names like this. It is rather tedious but it’s worth looking through, you might get clues.
