My great great grandfather, Josef Szumlinski, was said to be a Captain in the Army. We have assumed it was the Russian Army, since he lived in Zuromin and Radzanow, towns in the Polish part of Russia in the time period of 1835 (appx. year of his birth) and 1904, the year he died in Radzanow.
Can anyone confirm this from these photographs of him?
I would like to find out more about his service during this time period. Do any records exist?
