ABOUT THE PRESENTATION
The Works Progress Administration (WPA) was founded as part of President Roosevelt's New Deal. Providing jobs for over 8.5 million people, they were instrumental in compiling many records that are valuable to genealogists today. Many of the indexes and records we use today were compiled by the WPA; those unemployed professionals who were ‘put to work’ in the days following the Great Depression.
