ancestor listed as Rus Polish on American Census
Hi! My ancestor was born in 1870, and immigrated to the US in 1900. He and his wife are listed as Rus Polish on the census. Does this mean they were born in Russia and are of Polish desent? I'm just trying to figure out what to put in for the location of birth. The indexed information states Russia, however I want to understand it and ensure that is correct.
the Cielesz family in the census.
Thanks in advance!
