Russian Military Archive #russia #records


My grandfather was conscripted into the Russian Army somewhere around 1900 - 1904.  His name was Michael Goldsmith.  To whom do I contact to find his military record.  How do I contact the Russian Government?  Can I contact them in English or does it have to be in Russian?
Any help would be appreciated.

I have the same issue except the Russian Army conscription was in Poland about 1845-50. Do records for this period exist and can we access them? How? The surname was probably FRIEDMAN (Polish: FRIDMAN) or NATAN (Polish version of NATHAN).
