Baking, Soil Erosion, and Rats...Oh My!: Records of the Extension Service
The records of the Extension Service are some of the most interesting records held at the National Archives…and you just never know what you might find!  They provide a glimpse into local history and can even possibly aid individuals in genealogical research. Join Education Specialist, Jenny Sweeney from the National Archives at Fort Worth to explore these fascinating records.
