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.

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.

Microfilm copies of the original cards are maintained by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Days Saints. 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]. Orginal cards are kept at the National Archives branch near Atlanta, Georgia. These same cards are now available via charge at Ancestry.com ($).
