Seems to make sense given that Zemplen was bordering the 3 Ruthenian counties (Bereg, Maramaros and Ung) where the majority of the population spoke Ukrainian Russian. It is quite possible that several Zemplen Jews have migrated there >from those counties or even >from Ukraine, thus the censors felt it necessary to have forms in those peoples' language.

I wonder why would the 1869 Zemplen census forms have typed headings in Russian?
