Military draft records can include those who served, as well many who were drafted but never called to service. By the same token, those who enlisted or were already in the service at the time of the conflict will not be found in draft collections. Service records can include name, residence, birth information, physical description, enlistment and discharge dates, injuries or illnesses, assignments, rank and appointments, disabilities, and more.
Draft, Enlistment, and Service records allow you to learn more about your ancestor's military service, and may also contain significant information for your family history.
You'll often find birth information, residence, physical description, occupation, and in some cases, you'll even find other family members mentioned.
