On April 27, 1942, the Selective Service conducted the fourth of six draft registrations related to WWII. The "World War II Selective Service Draft Cards: Fourth Registration, 1942" is often referred to as the “Old Man’s Registration” or the “Old Man’s Draft" because it included men with a date of birth from April 28, 1877 to February 16, 1897. Since there is overlap in the WWI and WWII Selective Service registration, men born in the years 1877 to 1900 may have registered twice and have both WWII and WWI draft records.  *{{RecordSearch|1339071|United States, World War II Draft Registration Cards, 1942 (Image Browse)}} (FamilySearch) - free *{{RecordSearch|1861144|United States, World War II Draft Registration Cards, 1942}} (images with partial index) (FamilySearch) - free :Also available at:<br>  *[http://search.ancestry.com/search/db.aspx?dbid=1002 Ancestry] ($) *[http://www.fold3.com/title_765/wwii_old_mans_draft_registration_cards Fold3] ($). [[World War II United States Military Records, 1941 to 1945|World War II United States Military Records]] provides additional information.
