Re: "adoption" to avoid the czar's army #general #lithuania

I think I will take advantage of this discussion to pursue an area of research that I have been contemplating for some time. I would like to collect family stories about old country surname changes allegedly due to avoidance of military conscription.

I will not be pulling stories from this forum. I have attached a one page survey form in Word format. If you have such a story, please fill out the information and email it to me at extrayad@....

If you cannot access the attached form, email me privately and I will send it to you.

I promise to share the results of this survey in some format - depending upon its success.
