Exactly. I think some of the stuff in there may have been taken from the novels and/or online fanfic.

Trudy is usually short for Gertrude if anything.

In 'Mirror Image' we do find out that Al had an Uncle Stawpah, so it's probable he does have some Russian heritage on his mother's side of the family (or Ukrainian heritage - the Stawpah who appeared in the episode was Ukrainian). But I don't remember there ever being a point where Al talked about his mother being a Russian immigrant.
