WWI Draft Cards

I found a whole bunch of new information from the WWI Draft Cards on ancestry.com.

One of my favorite things I found was my Great Uncle Milt’s middle name. I’ve known for some time his middle initial was R, but wondered what it stood for. With a first name like Milford, and a brother named Orville Wilson, I was pretty sure the R did not stand for Robert or Richard. I now know it stands for Russell. And a Great-Great Uncle’s 2 middle initials stand for Jones Tilden. (Samuel J.T. Ware)

I plan also to add the transcriptions of the WWI Draft Cards to my sources pages. Now available here.
