Virtual Volunteer Project


The Archives' collections include nearly 79,000 Home Address Reports, which were sent to local Selective Service boards by Alabamians who enlisted in the armed forces from about 1940 to 1966. These reports provide details such as name, home address, branch of service, rank, service number, date of entry into service, race, gender, and date of birth. The amount of information varies on each card, but most include the subject's signature.


We need your help to transcribe the information found on the cards to create a

new, searchable resource for the public!

Virtual volunteer work is done on a standard web browser and requires no special software or equipment. Anyone with an internet connection can participate.
