On the person's edit screen, for the place for draft registration records, do you put in where they are living or the draft board location.I have some in Pennsylvania living on the west side of PA and the draft board is in central or Eastern PA.

I use the Military fact for draft registrations and the location of the draft board for the place.

If I want to also have a fact for where they actually lived if different from the location of the draft board, I use the Residence fact for that.

And if you have the draft registration as a source, cite it for both facts.

Like Laura, I often have two or more events from a draft registration record: Miscellaneous for the registration (with it's place); Residence (with it's place); Birth; Occupation; etc.

Thanks, I have a feeling I haven't been consistent with this, but I like the idea of the residence fact along with it.
