The WPA in the New Deal Era: free records for U.S. genealogy research

It’s one of my favorite topics. FREE is a great word. Registration is FREE. Access to most of what I will be discussing is FREE. We have lots of space available in this online presentation. The Family History Research Center at the Clayton Library Campus is part of the Houston, Texas, public library system and you can join us no matter where you live. The presentation and 7-page handout will tell you all about indexes created for census, naturalization, and passenger arrival records; abstracts of county commissioner minutes; abstracts of church records; newspaper indexes; slave and pioneer settler interviews; indexes to birth, death, and marriage records; lists of records in courthouses, town halls, libraries, and manuscript repositories; family histories; diary transcripts; county histories and indexes; newspaper clippings; and cemetery information.

To join in on Friday, April 19, 2024, at 3 p.m. EDT, 2 p.m. CDT, 1 p.m. MDT, and Noon PDT, register here
