I noticed that Ruth appears to be still living.  That complicates matters here.  Makes it more of a 'private investigator' search, than a genealogical search.
Not sure I understand your question.

Are you saying your mother is Ruth and you want to trace her parents?

Or are you saying you want to trace Ruth?

If the former, and Ruth is alive and willing a DNA test on Ruth would be a good start.

Is this in the United Kingdom?
