Ahnentafel number: The unique number assigned to each position in an ancestor table. Number one designates the person in the first generation, the one at the beginning of the chart. Numbers two and three designate the parents of number one and the second generation. Numbers four through seven designate the grandparents of person number one and the third generation. As the ahnentafel extends by generation, the number of persons doubles. (definition from ancestry.com)

I recently found both of my grandfather’s WWII Draft Cards Young Men, 1940-1947 along with other male relatives on ancestry.com and fold3.com Information on the record via ancestry.com.
This database contains World War II draft registration cards from multiple registrations filled out by men in select states aged 18–44.
The U.S. officially entered World War II on 8 December 1941 following an attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. About a year before, in October 1940, President Roosevelt had signed into law the first peacetime selective service draft in U.S. history because of rising world conflicts. Multiple registrations held between November 1940 and October 1946 signed up more than 50 million American men aged 18–45 for the draft.
Cards in This Database
This database contains images and indexes for registration cards filled out by men born between the years of 1898 and 1929 from Arkansas, Georgia, Louisiana, and North Carolina. The following states are also found in the index with a link to the images available on Fold3:
- New Mexico
- West Virginia
- District of Columbia
- Virgin Islands
More cards will be added from other states as they become available. The cards are potentially valuable sources of genealogical and family information, with details that can include:
- serial number
- address (some ask for mailing address as well)
- place of birth
- country of citizenship
- employer’s name
- place of employment (address)
- name and address of person who will always know registrant’s address, relationship to registrant
- description: race, eyes, weight, complexion, hair
- year of registration
The collection includes some replacement cards for registration cards that were destroyed. These cards list a name.
