Ancestry.com recently indicated that their database “U.S. WWII Draft Cards Young Men, 1940-1947” has been updated. This database is in progress (it is incomplete) and includes cards for traditional age registrants (men in select states aged 18–44). Ancestry.com has the index only. The actual card images are on Fold3.com. As of this writing, the following states are currently in the index (direct quote from Ancestry.com‘s page):

  • Alabama
  • Alaska
  • Arizona
  • Colorado
  • Connecticut
  • Delaware
  • Florida
  • Hawaii
  • Idaho
  • Maryland
  • New Mexico
  • Nevada
  • Oklahoma
  • Pennsylvania
  • Utah
  • Virginia
  • West Virginia
  • Wyoming
  • District of Columbia
  • Virgin Islands

Missouri cards were located (see the illustration), but it was not on the official list at Ancestry.com‘s description of this database. Fold3.com is showing Missouri as a state with images on their set of images. I’m not certain what has been added recently to either Ancestry.com‘s index or Fold3.com’s database.

Check it out for yourself.
