In Ivrit we always have the " to show that the letters are an abbreviation - usually before the last letter of a string.  It does not aid the meaning.

Show me the original Hebrew document, maybe there are some more clues?

Thank you. I didn’t mention (sorry) that it’s written: aleph “ yud. Maybe that provides a better clue?

Taken out of context it is difficult to be certain but Alef-Yud can stand for
"Or Yehuda"
Or Yashar
Eilat
"Eino Yehudi" = is not a Jew
Eino Yachol = is unable
Eretz Yisrael

to name but a few

Good day. In the 1932 census in Tzfat, my great-grandmother's country of birth and nationality is described in Hebrew letters as "Aleph Yud". Could someone shed a light as to what it means? I guess it's an acronym, but I cannot find its meaning.
Thank you,
