Last residence of Riga in 1920 before immigrating to US, says the passenger manifest #latvia #usa #lithuania

David and Saul (Zelman) MILLER (many spelling variations of surname) came to the US in 1920, in their twenties. They are my third great uncles. They were from Krekenava, now in Lithuania. Their last place of residence was Riga, Latvia, according to the NYC passenger manifest. I want to find out why they were in Riga. Was their relocation because of World War I? Is it possible they were Russian soldiers? Any databases I can use to find out? Or, does anyone know another reason they could be in Riga for?
