FGS member - 
Gary Gates : "Too Quiet on the Western Front?"
​Finding Out About Your World War 1-Era Ancestors
When the declaration of war occurred in 1917, the United States did not have a large military organization.  Therefore, President Woodrow Wilson called for the creation of a Selective Service organization to enable the US to better understand its manpower.  All men between the ages of 18- 45 were required to provide information about themselves and their families, including but not limited to;  their name, birthdate, birthplace, closest relative, number of dependents, occupation and employer.  This information is available to you, even if your ancestors were never called into active duty.  Gary will present information about the selective service process, the draft registration, and how to access the resulting treasure trove of data that is available to you.  ​
