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-day 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.
