    Online records for Cossacks, Russo-Japanese war.

    Hello,
    I recently found out that my grandfather that lived in Ukraine was a Cossack. He also was in the Russo-Japanese war. I've been looking for online records and have found none. Anyone aware of any Russian Military/Cossack online records please? Any help would be great.

    Thank you,

    Scott

    Not audio records. Looking for data on when he joined the military, where did he serve, for how long, etc.

    thank you,

    Scott

    Oh, I see. That would be hard, actually. I also can't find any online databases and I doubt they exist. I think your best chance to find any records is to visit a museum of local lore in a city he lived. If he earned any medals — especially Saint George medal — or paricipated in some famous battle, your chances rise. But even then they are quite low. Most records probably were lost during the Revolution and Civil War, especially in Ukraine.
