1910 Census lists German as language, but country of origin is "Russia. #ukraine #russia


Herbert Lazerow
 

    Three areas governed by Russia where the dominant language might have been German:
    Northern Poland, adjacent to what was then East Prussia.
    Parts of present-day Latvia, then ruled by Russia, had a Germanic culture.
    After WW1, western Ukraine was transferred from the Austro-Hungarian Empire, where the ambient language must have been German, to Russia.  That would not have applied in 1910.
