pag. is likely an abbrevation for "pagasts" a political entity somewhat like
county in the US, maybe smaller.

I have found some information on family members >from this list. I do
not understand one abbreviation I found in the birthplace column.

Birthplace: Nurmusen pag., Talsen d. what is "pag."?

I also cannot find any city in Courland, Talsen district called
Nurmusen. Would anyone have a clue to where it was or could be today?
