    Military & draft records for WWII

    Robert Donnelly Newbie

      Greetings. I am curious if you would know of any way to obtain a master list (ledger?) of draft registrants and/or draftees for Albuquerque, N.M., for Dec. 7, 1941-Dec. 6, 1942. I have exhausted local official sources and am unable to travel to St. Louis to do archival research there. Although I've found a workaround for obtaining the names of draftees, by searching digitized local newspaper clippings for keywords like "draft," I don't know how comprehensive these news articles are, and I still lack a master list of draft registrants to compare them against. I am attempting to conduct research on the workings of the draft in Albuquerque for the period mentioned, not searching for details on any particular person's record or file.
