Program Announcement: The WPA Historical Records Survey, The Roots of Genealogy in Northeast Ohio

Join us on Wednesday, April 1, at 7:00 p.m. in the Library Program Room. In commemoration of the Ohio Genealogical Society Conference (being held this year in Erie County April 2-4), Archives Librarian Ron Davidson will talk about the Historical Records Survey, a Great Depression-era project of the WPA, which helped to record and organize government records and historical documents throughout the U.S. Discover how the roots of this project are traced to nearby Cleveland, and learn more about the results of the project and its effects for today's researchers. Registration is requested. To register, call the Library at 419-625-3834.
