|World War II Draft Registration
|A draft administered
by the Selective Service System was re-inaugurated during World War II.
Until recently, the registration cards for this war were stored in federal
records centers and were not generally accessible, but some National
Archives regional archives are now processing them and making them
ready for examination. For example, the National Archives regional archives
(Great Lakes region) at Chicago already has processed and made available
the cards for Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, and Wisconsin. Inquiries
should be made at the regional archives nearest the place where registration
occurred. Other Selective Service System documents of a
local or regional nature, dating from
1940, may be found in some National Archives regional archives and
sometimes fragments can be found among the holdings of state archives.
Included in some of these holdings are lists of names of individuals who
were sent to conscientious objectors' work camps in lieu of military service
