Re: What was the purpose of this document issued in Czarist Russia? #russia

I have the same passport document for my grandmother dated 1910. She emigrated to the USA later the same year. Translation of my grandmother's passport provided her father and husband's names, a physical description (taller than average), and information that she was illiterate. It included the same official stamps as the passport image you shared. We had also found a document from her village verifying her identify that we believe was required for her to receive the passport.
