92 WWII Ration Book Images Added (1940's)
This week we added 92 images to the Registry of War Ration Books, which include several user contributions. This is a new project involving an interesting source of genealogical information for the 1940's.
This week I learned that there is actually a club called the Society of Ration Token Collectors! They're celebrating their 40th year and have over 150 members. The society collects, trades, sells paper & token home front ration items (for food, clothing, gasoline, tires, etc.); focuses on all types of rationing material from 1941 to 1945: tokens, forms, ration books, posters, coupons, etc.
Here are surnames of the new items:
