The brothers in my DRAIKIN family (>from Ukraine) took a circuitous
route about 1916, traveling east along the Trans-Siberian Railroad (and
its Chinese equivalent) eventually to Harbin, China, then to Korea and
to Japan (Japan and Russia were at war, and China was a Russian ally,
so they had to pass through Korea to get to a Japanese port). From
Yokohama, Japan, they sailed to Seattle, Washington (USA). I assume
that it was on the <fontfamily><param>Times</param>NYK </fontfamily>Aki
Maru but have to check the National Archives in Seattle to confirm.
