Re: Russian Passport #translation

The Russian pages say the passport was given to the Grozovsky meshchanin Khaim-Abram Shaevich Vendrov, in Minsk on April 11, 1910 (this is on the Julian calendar, not the Gregorian). Meshchanin means he was classified as a townsperson, or petit bourgeois, rather than a farmer, peasant, merchant with a certain amount of capital, soldier, etc. Grozovsky means he was registered in what is now Grozovo, Belarus.
