World War I draft registration cards

Thanks to a tip from a distant relative in the Czech Republic, I became aware of a free offer from where you can obtain copies of World War I draft registration cards. The free offer runs through the end of February and is available at:

I found the above draft registration card of my grandfather, Edward Kostal. The card dates from 1917. Interestingly, there were three Edward Kostals available for the draft that year -- two from Nebraska. I wonder if they ever met.

I'm still around!

I know I haven't made any meaningful posts here for several weeks. I'm awaiting some more photos from my cousin, including a photo of my great grandfather, James Kostal, when he first came over to the U.S. from Czechoslovakia. Technorati tags: ,
