My grandfather, Conrad Ludwig (Louis) Brill was drafted into the
Russian Army, before he came from Norka to America in 1899, but I do
not know the length of time or dates that he served. Does anyone know
where I could get this information?

Also I heard that the Germans who did not speak or understand
Russian, were treated badly while in the Russian Army (an incentive
to learn the Russian language). Does anyone know anything about this?
