Louisiana First Registration Draft Cards, 1940-1945


Draft registration cards covering a special classification of individuals born between February 17, 1897 to 1928. The cards are arranged alphabetically by surname and are a part of Record Group 147: Records of the Selective Service System, 1926-1975. The collection was acquired from the National Archives Southwest Region in Fort Worth, Texas. Images contain surnames from A to M. However, the current index covers surnames from D to M. Some index entries and images for surnames from K to L are not in the current collection. Images and index are being added as they become available. In August of 2013, the National Archives replaced the ARC – Archival Research Catalog - with the OPA – Online Public Access. ARC identifiers will still work to access the collections in OPA.
