“The New Deal: Putting Our Ancestors to Work”
Michael L. Strauss
Out of the New Deal programs of the 1930’s Great Depression came an abundance of records used by genealogists today as part of the 3-Rs”, Relief, Recovery, and Reform. Many documents recorded the personal experiences of our ancestors who lived then and sought help from the Federal Government.
