Started in 1935 as part of Roosevelt's New Deal, the Works Progress (later Projects) Administration created jobs for workers meeting certain income and family census criteria.  Projects included building and improving America's infrastructure and support for the arts, history and culture of America.  One such project was the Historical Records Survey, later a part of the Research and Records Program, a component of which involved compiling indexes of vital statistics, cemetery interments, school records, military records, maps, newspapers and other resources for research into American history.

 

Researchers are advised that the information contained in the following transcriptions and images of the Somerset County WPA Records should not be considered infallible.  Nor should this information be considered as proof positive that the information contained therein is in fact historically accurate.  Further corroboration of these transcriptions by additional genealogical documentation methodology is recommended.
