Known Issues

There are two collections listed in Historical Records for the United States, World War II Draft Registration Cards, 1942. Normally the index and browsable images would be combined into a single collection; however, the current FamilySearch design requires that each collection have only one type of image browse.

1. The first set of images has a searchable index and can also be browsed by Digital Film (DGS) numbers. Draft cards are arranged in alphabetical order within each DGS number. Using the search feature is the best way to view these records. For locality browse and name browse, use the second, related collection (see below).

Current scope:Index and images of draft cards are from Louisiana, Oklahoma, Texas, and Wisconsin.
Future scope: Indices to draft cards for other states will be added to this collection over time.

2. The second collection does not have a searchable index but can be browsed by locality, which leads into a name search. It consists of Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York City (Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, and Staten Island), Ohio, Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico, Rhode Island, and Vermont.

Completeness of original United States, World War II Draft Registration Cards, 1942:
Draft cards have not yet been acquired by the Family History Department, as of December 2009, for: Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, District of Columbia, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, New York (outside NYC), North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming.

Draft cards that were destroyed before microfilming or digitizing, or that have whereabouts as unknown as of Dec. 2009, are: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Maine, American Samoa, Canal Zone, Guam, U.S. Virgin Islands.

Question: In searching for my ancestor I am finding a discrepancy between the front and the back of the card. They do not seem to match. Can you help me with this?
Answer: These cards seem to have been misaligned in the filming. Scroll forward one image and you should see the back of the card on the bottom of the next image, I.e, the front of image 32 matches better with the back page of image 33. Both are Washington County. The front of image 34 matches better with the back page of image 35. Both are Clearfield County, etc.

If you encounter additional problems with this collection, feel free to report them at support@familysearch.org. Please include the following information:

  • If searching a specific collection: please include the name of the collection; include all search criteria used, including name, event, dates and places.
  • If browsing this collection: please include the full path you followed to where the problem occurred. The browse path is located above the Image viewer window.
    For example: United States, World War II Draft Registration Cards, 1942 (Image Browse) > Pennsylvania > Wal > Walker, Sidney> Image 32 of 41
  • If you are reporting a technical issue: please include your operating system and browser version, such as Windows XP and Internet Explorer.
