    Seeking WWI Registration Card for Stephen M Bartles

    Evan Nance Adventurer

      Hi I am looking for a registration card for someone named Born June 20th 1881. I don't know if you need this but I was looking for my family ancestor and I found this:


      Registration Location: Kings County, New York; Roll:1754134; Draft Board:23. Ancestry.com. World War I Draft Registration Cards, 1917-1918 . Provo, UT Original data: United States, Selective Service System. World War I Selective Service System Draft Registration Cards, 1917-1918. Washington, D.C. National Archives and Records Administration. M1509, 4,582 rolls. Stephen Bartels City: Brooklyn County: Kings, State: New York Birth Date: 20 Jun 1881 Race: White Roll:1754134 Draft Board: 23


      If you could help me that would be most appreciative. He was apparently institutionalized for being insane, I am trying to find out why. Thanks
