    Seek other Women's Committee Council of Defense registration cards

      Is there a place where the Women's Committee Council of Defense registration cards have been catalogued? Back in 2017, we came across a drawer filled with cards while doing WWI research at the Miami County Museum in Peru, IN. We soon discovered American women were asked to register for war work. The government was looking to create a clearinghouse of skills US women could bring to the table to help the war efforts. In Miami County, IN, 8503 women ages 16 and up registered.  Sadly we only have 3767 of the cards. We scanned them on both sides and indexed them. We have made our cards/index available online at http://www.miamicountyinworthremembering.org/military/WWI/Womenscards/index.html,  How many other places have located their own?
