Part I of our four part series on researching your World War II ancestors is an introduction to the genealogy records for the years immediately preceding the war. It is necessary to go back to the years of the Great Depression to research your ancestors during the war. This lecture includes resources from the New Deal programs including the Civilian Conservation Corps, National Youth Administration along with the Americans who served in the ranks of the Canadian and British military. Part I ends with details about the National Guard and the Selective Service Act of 1940 where the United States prepares for war.
