If you look at the All Lithuanian Database
Revision Lists there are many listed as conscripted and sometimes it lists parents and other family members. I have found lots of family that way.
Hope this helps .

Please note that there is also a discussion on Jewish Gen between a number of us about stories concerning family members who maimed themselves to get out of the draft. I've been collecting these stories and trying to confirm (without, so far, a lot of success) that the maiming actually occurred, and that the real injuries some relatives had were as a result of attempting to avoid the draft. For important background research, I've found that the "gold standard" of historical research about the Russian draft is Yohanan Petrovsky-Shtern's 2009 book, JEWS IN THE RUSSIAN ARMY, 1827-1917. Also really good is Olga Litvak's CONSCRIPTION AND THE SEARCH FOR MODERN RUSSIAN JEWRY.
