Hi Betty,

    The indicated province (Rheinland) strongly indicates that the location is in Germany proper.  Listing Prussia as the country does not contradict that.  Prior to 1871, Prussia consisted of many different geographical areas spread all across what is Germany today.  This area is most likely in the province / state of Rheinland Palatinate today.  Google maps can show you a small village named Ründeroth in this area.

Good luck!

Does anyone know the location RUENDEROTH, RHEINLAND, PRUSSIA? Is in Germany or 

It was shown as the birthplace of someone who may be an ancestor although to my 
knowledge this ancestor was born in Poland. JewishGen Gazetteer or Kartenmeister 
came up with nothing. Is Google correct placing it in Germany?
