Re: Would Jews be identified as soldiers in marriage record? #general

Pauline Rosenberg <> asked,"If a Jewish man
(Congress Poland) who had served in the Russian army married, would it
indicate on his marriage record that he was a soldier?"

The short answer is 'possibly' - but their primary trade or profession would
have to be 'soldier'. So rather than having 'served', I think he would have
to be a serving soldier at the time of marriage. The best source of general
information on Jewish service in the Imperial Russian Army can be found at .
