“Baking, Soil Erosion, and Rats…Oh My! How the Records of the Extension Service May Enrich Your Family History Research” with Jenny McMillen Sweeney
The records of the Extension Service are some of the most interesting and underutilized records held at the National Archives . . . and you just never know what you might find! Although not the typical vital records that genealogists seek, they may help family history enthusiasts learn more about their ancestors with a glimpse into rural life during the first part of the 20th century.
