Re: Alternate surnames in Eastern Europe? #general

Dear Zalman,

I know of one reason for which the male members were all registered under
different surnames. I have a friend whose grandfather did this in order to
avoid conscription into the Imperial Russian Army. >from what my friend told
me, I think the ploy worked.

...Was it possible also to have different familial and civil surnames?...
