There were two blanks on the WWI draft registration card - one for the name
and one for the address of the "nearest relative". If the man was married,
his wife's name and address were usually listed. If he was not married, the
person listed might be his father or mother or some other "nearest"
relative - even if that person was not in the US. I have seen names of
towns in Poland listed for address of nearest relative.
