Click on Thumbnail for larjer Photo! What Can I Find in the World War I Civilian Draft Registration Cards?
In 1917 and 1918, approximately 24 million men living in the United States completed a registration card, representing 98% of men under the age of 46 and close to 25% of the total population. Pres WILSON declared WAR on Germany on Apr 2, 1917, USA Troops set foot on European soil, arrived in France by the fall of 1917. On July 15, 1918 the German army began the offensive known as the "Second Battle of the Marne" in France. A quarter of a million U.S. troops played a crucial part in beating off the German assault at Chateau-Thierry, and by July 18, 1918 the last great German drive of the War had been defeated. By October 1918 the final Allied offensive had driven Germany to sue for peace, and an armistice was declared in November 1918, and the Peace Treaty of Versailles, Paris, concluded in Jun 1919.

Click on Thumbnail for larjer Photo! The WWI draft registration cards contain a lot of information pertinent to genealogical research. Information that may be found on these cards includes full name, address, age, date of birth, race, citizenship, occupation, employers name, location of employment, name and address of nearest relative, physical description, and signature of registrant, among other things.
Use the information found in this database to fill in details about your ancestor's life. Then, use the information as a springboard to lead you to other records. For example, if the address of your ancestor is listed on the draft card, use that information to find your ancestor in a city directory and then trace your ancestor through that city's directories for as many years as you can.
The draft cards are also a good source for finding immigrant information because all young men were required to register, regardless of U.S. citizen status, and since 1880-1920 was a high immigration period, a large portion of immigrant men registered and gave information of birth date, birthplace, and in some cases their father's birthplace and nearest relative.
