Unusual style of writing dates #ukraine


Below are two unusual dates, from letters written in Kiev c. 1960-70.

July 27, 692

October 30, 712

Any idea what the years might be?

Here is a third date from the same writer, which is written in the standard style:

October 29, 1969r [r = "года" ("of the year")]

I would surmise that July 27, 692 = July 27, 5692 = July 27, 1932.(where the year is the accepted abbreviated form of the Jewish year)
Likewise October 30, 712 - October 30, 5712 = October 30, 1951

Sagan/Shagan family from Veliuona (Velon), Lithuania
Goldberg family from Vidukle, Lithuania
Susselovitch/Zuselovitch family from Raseiniai (Rassein), Lithuania


Just realized that the "2" at the end of both dates is really an "r," which stands for года" ("of the year" in Russian). So the first one is [19]69, and the second is [19]71.
