Russia required all male Russian immigrants in USA and Canada to registerHmmm. Being that many emigrants >from Russia left for the purpose of evading

Russian consulate in the new world even if "required". It seems Russia would
have little practical power to enforce this requirement. Is there any
indication what percentage of immigrants complied with this?
I am familiar, by the way, with the American Historical Society of Germans
from Russia (www.ahsgr.org), and they have done some excellent work.Tom Chatt

This was the same rule for eligibility to vote in some recent
Russian elections. Not sure if it is still the law.
