The information below was abstracted by Raymond H. Banks from civilian
registration cards completed in 1917-1918.
All rights reserved.
Some men do not have birth locations listed because they registered on the final draft registration day in 1918 when this information was not recorded. Almost 24 million men registered for the draft -- not always in the county of residence.
CAUTION: Middle Eastern and East European national boundaries and country names were quite different than those seen on today's maps.
Microfilm copies of the original cards are maintained by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Days Saints (LDS...the Mormons). Researchers can probably order loaner copies of specific reels from Salt Lake City through requests at local LDS family history centers. Payment for mailing costs is required. Catalog subject heading: UNITED STATES -- MILITARY RECORDS -- WORLD WAR I [although these records are not actually military records]. Original cards are kept at the National Archives branch near Atlanta, Georgia.
The compiler has not abstracted the registrant's address,
the name and address of next of kin,
occupation, work address, general physical description and
occasionally listed general description of a disability.
Please consult the original card to verify all information.
The following is a list of all counties currently available.
