World War I Draft

Registration Cards




Those people already in the services were not included.  The cards are scanned online.  Some are very difficult to read.  The cards contain more information including current address, occupation, and employer.


Under each soldier's name I've included who I believe his parents were.  This is a judgment based on my files and the info given in the attestation paper.  While the name of the father or mother was often included in the document the names of both parents were not.  If you are aware of any corrections, additions or identifications please let me know.
