I found my grandfather, but his name was inexact as known
to us today. His first name seems to be the name used
on Naturalization papers and used when signing official forms
until the late 1930s.
The middle name soon became his first name and the first, his second.
Jacob Saul became Saul Jacob and later he used Saul J.
His birth date also changed on these forms, until now I have
heard of only 2 dates, both in 1901, now I
have a date from 1902.
I know this is my grandfather since both his spouse and
address are correct.

how do you know the fellow that
wrote the readin,

Susan Meyer asked where on the WWll Draft card the date of entry could be found. The cards are on two pages. There is an arrow on the right hand side to the right of #8 that takes you to the second page that has the physical characteristics of the person, the date and location of draft board as well as the registrar's signature.
