FAMILY HISTORY TIP


 

Family History Tip
Depression Era Tip
My father-in-law explained to me that he had work identification that reversed his given and middle names because during the Depression men applied for work under their true name and also under variations to increase their chances of securing work in those tough times. He worked in the Portland (OR) shipyards under the name of James Clifton LaRue rather than Clifton James LaRue. This was before Social Security, so it was not difficult to change a name when seeking employment.
