RE: Freemasonry and October 1917
Hey Frank.. groovy 1st post as R.R said, also i do like muh Zappa.... Tongue
there are however a few wee things not quite right with yer list

frankzappa Wrote:Names and terms used in the list
AASR – Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite – Split into Northern and Southern Jurisdiction in the US.
RAM – Royal Arch Mason
Degrees – Initiation to the brotherhood of Freemasonry is enacted in stages or degrees. In Scottish Rite Freemasonry there are 33 degrees.
Raised – Initiated into Freemasonry.
Chapter – A branch of Freemasonry.
Shriner – A branch of Freemasonry for Scottish Rite Masons.
Raised is what happens in the Third degree when the felow craft , while enacting the character of Hiram Abiff, dies and then is "raised" in a figurative sense from the grave.
Chapter is what a Royal Arch Mason goes to... for example in Edinburgh.. off the top of my head there is Edinburgh Royal Arch Chapter Number One in Brodies Close.
Shriners are an American thing and i am pretty sure that they don't exist outside the USA.
And the AASR again is an American/Canadian thing, in most other places you'll find it's AFAM(antient free and accepted masons) or perhaps those that are aligned with the UGLE(united grand lodge of England - in this case though the ugle lodges can be discounted as you state it's Scottish Rite ones involved) . mind you , in saying that you do also get AFAM in America too.

Also a wee point to note, as i recall from reading. Lennin and co were initiated at the infamous seven sisters lodge in paris. i am pretty sure that even when they went through their degrees that the Grand Orient of France were not in "amity" with either the Grand lodge of Scotland England or any of the AFAM lodges in the USA due the the GOF's position that there is no need for a belief in a "God or a supreme being"
if there's one thing that can be said of Freemasonry it's that they are really pissy about things like
In Russia things were a real hodge podge mix of different rites.. English, French, Swedish and german,then finally on a date you may remember.... in 1776 the 14 lodges there formed a Grand lodge of their own.
it went into statis in 1905 then started to die a death in 1917.. and finally was forbidden in 1922 by the soviet regime.
Albeit i have read some places there were some soviet lodges and even a grand lodge ... however.. not from reputable sources tbh,

AS time went by and the soviet union collapsed the Grand Lodge of France(not to be confused with the grand orient of france.) helped form the Grand lodge of Russia in 1995.
