Thank you Mary Lou. I guess I just don't have that branch of Creekmore's.

Alduston Creekmore was s/o Horatio Creekmore/Elizabeth Moore. Horatio Creekmore was s/o Seth and Nancy Creekmore. I don't have the parents of Seth.

The Federal Writers Project was part of the Works Progress Administration. During the Great Depression of the 1930's, the WPA employed over 6 million American professional and non-professional writers who collected the life histories of over 10,000 Americans of diverse socio-economic and ethnic backgrounds. Many of these stories and interviews are available at the Library of Congress - American Memory website. Explore the site, especially the following examples of primary sources.

I am hoping that here we can get some interest from others who may not know about Our Creekmore Branches and also maybe we can help bring down some of our own brick walls by opening this up to others.

If y'all have any ideas on what we need here.... just give a shout!

Early Settlers' Personal Histories

As part of the Works Progress Administration's (WPA) Federal Writers' Project many older citizens were interviewed to provide first hand recollections of their life's history (primary sources). In Arkansas these were done in the early 1940's when the WPA was beginning to downsize and funds dried up.

Although many other states had published their works from the Federal Writers' Project earlier, Arkansas' work was never published. Many of the remaining handwritten interviews are stored in the University of Arkansas' Special Collection Library. in Fayetteville. U of A has begun transcribing some of these with their
African Americans in Arkansas series.
