Veteran's Grave Registration

In the 1930's, the Work Projects Administration (WPA), a program that came out of "The New Deal," funded a Veteran's Grave Registration  program.  Workers visited public and private cemeteries across the  country and mapped the location of veteran grave sites. This  information was compiled in 1940, so the records linked below do not  include information after 1940.
