Document Day: Sylvester W. Carter WWI Draft Registration Card

     “Document Day” is a daily post for any day of the week.  I have a large saved collection of Shoebox Documents from Ancestry.com to be evaluated over time as I am building my family tree.  I felt it necessary to share  and post what I have so that it might be helpful to myself and to those who might be searching the same surnames in the same locale.
