Unusual style of writing dates #ukraine


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.

Yehuda Altein
Brooklyn, NY


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
Steve Goldberg

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


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")]
