A Genealogical Treasure: The WWI Registration Cards of American Women - Jo Ellyn Clarey
The most extensive census of American women ever undertaken was the WWI women’s registration cards, a genealogical gold mine. The effort to profile women available for war work resulted in 4,000,000 cards nationwide. In 2018, Grand Rapids unveiled a fully searchable database of 23,000 women’s cards, using over 100 fields, collected in Kent County. Join Jo Ellyn Clarey, co-president of the Greater Grand Rapids Women’s History Council, to learn about the information the cards reveal and the challenge of locating cards still uncovered.
