Congregational Family Number #general

Morton Rumberg

Dear Genners,

One of the columns of the L'viv vital statistics is Congregational Family
Number. This is obviously a registration number, but for what purpose? But
Why are some families designated with a number, some with the word None, and
some left blank? What is the difference between the designations? Was it
wealth, position in community, government employed? Other than a
registration number, what was it used for? Did it convey any benefit?

Many thanks,
