See GN 00302.580

A. DRAFT RECORDS

As indicated in GN 00302.580D, World War II (WWII) draft records were transferred in 1971 and 1972 from the State Directors of Selective Service to the various Federal Records Centers (FRC). The FRC in Fort Worth, Texas houses records for Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Texas. The FRC in Denver, Colorado houses records for New Mexico. The selective service records for persons born after 1897 are filed alphabetically by local selective service board number. The second group of numbers in the selective service number refers to the local board where the claimant registered. For example, a selective service number of 3-6-17 means the claimant registered in local board number 6.

B. REQUESTING INFORMATION FROM DRAFT RECORDS

Follow instructions in GN 00302.580E. when requesting information from draft records. Be sure to show the claimant's selective service number to help the FRC locate the record.

If the number is unknown, use Charts 1 through 5 below to determine the local board number based on the claimant's county/parish of residence at the time of selective service registration. If there are more than one but less than three local boards, prepare an SSA-2647 for each board. If there are more than three local boards (e.g., Orleans Parish), send the SSA-2647 directly to the Prior Records Center at the address shown below for them to locate the possible local board number.

Prior Records Center—SSS
P. O. Box 94638
Palatine, Illinois 60094-4638

Telephone 708-688-4636

The request will be forwarded by the Prior Records Center to the appropriate FRC to search for the record and reply to the requesting field office.
