Young Men's Draft Registration Cards
« on: Thursday 25 October 18 21:36 BST (UK) »
Got notification that Ancestry had recently put this on their website.  Since I don't have a subscription, I went to the library to view the database.  I believe there are 32 states completed, but the strange thing is, Ancestry only had the transcription of the front of the card.  It states that if you want to see the original, you need to view it on www.fold3.  The back of the card has the description of the applicant.  On fold3 it is included in its WWII draft database, not under Young Men's Draft etc.  Also, fold3 is available for home access via a lot of libraries, so an individual subscription to it might not be necessary.
