Tracing Family Members Conscripted into the Russian Imperial Army - Possible? #russia #records

David Levine

Hi everyone,

I just learned that two different family members were conscripted into the Russian Imperial army, in 1839 and in 1863.

Is it possible to find records for those individuals? 

Are they online or can anyone recommend experts who research this?

Hello David,
Russian State War Historical Archive is offering genealogical and biographical research: 
They mention that the lists are not complete.
For the period from the XVIII century to 1917, they ask to proved full name, rank, year of service, location, and regimen or military unit.

I have also read that there are Russia Military Records on FamilySearch, but I could not find this section.
