Finding Your New Deal Ancestry

The Living New Deal website now features a new page: Find Your New Deal Ancestry. This page walks you through requisition information and records from the National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) in St. Lous, Missouri, part of the National Archives. While contacting the National Archives may seem daunting, this page makes the process easy and approachable. It’s an exciting way for people to discovery whether they have relatives who were employed in one or more of the various New Deal programs, such as the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), the Works Progress Administration (WPA), or the National Youth Administration (NYA).
