->In 1903 to the Russian Army drafted people born between Oct.1 1881 and
->Oct.1 1882 In Minsk gubernia more than 850 Jews avoided draft in 1903
->(and -officials found out about it). For Minsk gubernia that supplied
->Russian Army with total numbers of draftees about 10,000 yearly (Jews
->and non-Jews) it would seem quite noticeable. ........
What about a Jew who was already in the army in Vitebst and in 1903/4
deserted and came to the US (Dec 1904). Where would one find the Russian
military records about such a person?
