    Hi Guys,
    Im writing an article about Crocker motorcycles , the big dollar things at auctions . theres alot of rubbish info on the net so I had to dig to find genuine info , dates , people etc.
    I checked out ancestry , Im not a member , does not look too inviting .
    Im trying to find draft info on brothers Elmo Looper 1915 - 1969 , Jackie Looper 1920 - ??? both born oregon , lived in california 1940 which was when the draft time kicked

    note these are not my family

    cheers Paris

    If you can find good solid info on a Crocker finding out about your brothers should be a snap. !! :) Several people here will chime in with the how-to part. Oh, and welcome.
