RE: [S-R] World War I Draft Registration Records Analysis
- In 1917/1918 Hawaii was not even thinking about being a state. New Mexico
and Arizona were the last two of the original 48 states admitted in 1912.
You need to include the District of Columbia in the alphabetical list and
exclude Hawaii, Alaska and Puerto Rico in order for Wisconsin to be #48.
Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico are included in the Ancestory.com description
of the WWI Draft records. Has anyone researched anyone from those regions?
If so, what are the first numeric digits from the stamped number on page 2?

If you list the states alphabetically, including
Hawaii but not Alaska, the numbers of each state would
be what you have indicated.
