World War I and II Draft Registrations

Even if your ancestor did not serve in World War I or World War II, they should have registered for the draft. Many of these cards are online free at FamilySearch. The “Young Men’s Draft” from World War II are free, but not indexed–but are in alphabetical order.

This is the World War II Draft Registration card for Mimka Johnson Habben (“Old Men’s Draft” registration). He did not serve in the war.
