American Ansteys in the 1917/18 Draft Registration Completed

Towards the end of World War One, following America’s declaration of war on Germany in April 1917, there were three Draft Registrations. The first was held on 5 June 1917 for men ages 21-31. The second was held on 5 June 1918 for men who turned 21 since the first registration. The third started 12 September 1918 for men ages 18-45.

In effect this provides us with a form of ‘mini-census’ of adult American males at that time, and we have now completed the mapping of all the ‘Anstey’, Ansty’, ‘Anstee’ and ‘Anstie’ who appeared therein.

The listing can be found on the American Anstey page under the 1917/1918 Draft Registration.
