    I found reference to a “Boston Camp” north of Moquah, Wisconsin. Do you have any information on it?

  2. Rosalyn Lavasseur

    I know from family verbal history that my grandfather, Bernard Ottman, and my husband’s grandfather, Frithjof “Fritz” Swanson, both worked on northern Wisconsin CCC projects, but we don’t know which one(s). Are there lists somewhere of participants in the various projects? Any information you can provide is appreciated.
