Dear all,

We would like to ask your help in finding any information about our
grand grandfather Usher MAJNFEL'D who was born in
Bessarabia around 1873 in the Beltsy District. He served in Russian
Army and participated in the Russian-Japanese war in 1904-1905.

So far we had little success in our search. After multiple attempts to
find any information about him online and >from such official
organizations as the National Russian Army Archive, our only lead came from
the list of Russian Army Jewish soldiers injured, killed or missing
in action published by the FAST Genealogy Service
( that was translated
from the Russian Invalid newspaper.
According to record obtain >from the FAST site, he served as a Rifleman
in the 9th Eastern Siberian Rifle Regiment and was Injured on 29th
September 1904 at the Village of Bentsikhu.

We will greatly appreciate any references, information or suggestions
on finding more information about him.

Thank you in advance.
