My grandfather, Morris WEINSTEIN, lived in Riga, Latvia (Russia) with his family.
In November, 1905, he received a draft notice from the Russian army and
was told to report by November 30, 1905. He was 19. He landed in New York,
aboard the "Bluecher", a ship he boarded in Hamburg, on Feb. 5, 1906. So
glad he dodged the draft!
