WPA Gravestone Records
The W.P.A. cemetery records were transcribed by the Works Project Administration, Graves Registration Project. The Works Project Administration was a relief program created during the presidency of Franklin Delano Roosevelt in the 1930s. The program provided employment for millions of people during the Great Depression.

The records are an excellent source for information about stones that existed 70 years ago, but have since disappeared. These records are not complete nor are they always accurate. Be sure to check for misspellings and try to confirm the information through another source.

The listings on this page are gif files of the "original" documents and are not searchable. A searchable transcription of these records is available at The Iowa WPA Graves Survey
