IGS Welcomes Linda McCann

Iowa Genealogical Society is pleased to welcome Linda McCann on Saturday, December 3rd.  Linda is an Iowa author who has written a number of books on Iowa History.  During this event, Linda will be presenting on the topic of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC).  The Civilian Conservation Corps was a federal program during the Depression years that assisted young men in  supporting their families. Most Iowans know about the work the CCC did in our state parks.  But, in Iowa, 75% of the work done by the CCC dealt with soil erosion, drought prevention and planting trees.  Linda was able to speak with men who had been in the CCC and shares their memories.  
Linda will have copies of all her books available for purchase.  Come and purchase a Christmas gift for all of your genealogist friends!
