Robert W. Shofner’s WW I Draft Reg. Card

Standard
Like most genealogists, I like to be able to put my ancestors in a particular place at a particular time. Most of my ancestors moved from time to time, so that have been pretty easy to track.

However, my paternal grandmother’s parents, Robert W. Shofner and Annie Elizabeth Liles, moved more than the rest. I remember when I first asked my grandmother where her siblings where born, she had a hard time remembering all the different places. She went on to explain that her father was a carpenter and moved to where ever the work was found. I have ran the census records on them and know where they was living in every census year from the time of their birth to their deaths.

So when I ran across this card I was glad to be able to pinpoint where they were living in a non-census year. Again it just adds to the information that I know about them, making it more personal then just a name and date on a tombstone.

This card was found on Ancestry.com – in the database World War I Draft Registration Cards, 1917-1918

Hope you enjoyed, glad you stopped by and please come back again 😉
