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.
