I am interested to know how moneyMy grandfather sent 100 rubles to his father in Ukraine in 1917. I
assume he sent it via the Russian consulate in New York, because there's
a record of it in the Consular archives (available on microfilm). It
amounted to $13.05 + 25 cents postage and 4 cents for translation costs.
