WWII Draft Card Info

Postby LKate » 25 Feb 2009, 17:43

I'm the type of person who detests asking other people to do things I should be doing myself, but I'm not willing to start the ancestry.com trial quite yet, and I'd like this information before I go to the Mormon Center tomorrow to look at films.

My great-grandfather, Guido Comella, was born Feb 27, 1887. He settled in New Jersey when he immigrated. I see there is a GUIDO FRANK COMELLO listed on ancestry's site, and I'm specifically looking for his WWII draft card. Would someone be willing to look it up and post the information? Most importantly, I'm looking for the birthplace ... want to confirm that is Candelo. Many thanks.

I can't thank you guys enough. This is incredible!! Now I know for certain that I ordered the correct films, and I also now have Guido's father's name. You've made my day. I'm excited to see what I find on the films tomorrow.
