The Russian Wikipedia has little material on the Volga Finns that is worth translating. --Ghirla-трёп- 14:48, 6 July 2008 (UTC)
Russian sources are welcome, to combine to that information already in hands. But a lot is still missing and every piece of not yet published information in English Wikipedia is worth of transliteration to English. I have collected summary of the information which was published of Volga Finns up to 1939 from Finnish sources and some interesting details was found.
Kozla-Mari (larch or forrest Mari) is the self name for Meadow-Mari which are also called Forest-Mari. Sometime also called "Hard Mari".
Kuruk-Mari (Hill Mari) is selfname for Vuor (Mountain) Mari living south side of Volga. Sometime called also "Soft Mari".
Magyari the name the Hungarians use of themselves, but originally meaning only one of the seven Hungarian tribes, living nearest south of Handa-hui on the south side of Kama and Veher (Belaja) rivers. Moved to Bashkiria. Had connections to Mansi.
