Re: What does the abbreviation "MZ" or "M3" mean in the Creed column of the 1897 Russian census? #russia #translation #records


Thank you for that explanation, Ilya. Do you know why only the first four Volodarsky family members were listed with "Moses' Law", while the the other four members were listed as Jewish with the notation "Iud/Yud"? What is the difference between "M3" and "Iud"? I've gone through thousands of census pages, and this is the only record I've seen that used the abbreviation "M3". 

Thank you,
Ben Zitomer
