 Because of so much spam in the Guestbook, this forum had been  moderated.  However, we experienced problems with the Guestbook and it is now inactive.  We have now found a replacement.

We lost the ability to send email to those who signed the old Guestbook but we have retained the entries.   If you wish to have your email address available, either for others who may want to contact you or for The Museum Association to get in touch with you, please send an email to admin@wva-ccc-legacy.org and we will enter it here.  Or you can sign the new guestbook by clicking Guestbook here.

For those seeking information about an individual who was in the CCC, please go to the Homepage and click on the link, Research on CCC Camps or Enrollees on the Menu. You will be led to detailed information on how to proceed.

My father Steve Shaluta and my uncle John Shaluta were both enrolled in the CCC. I know Uncle John was at Camp Tygart in Randolph County, but I'm not postive that my father was there. Any pictures or newletters from Camp Tygart would be greatly appreciated.

I'm so glad that folks are honoring the young men in West Virginia's CCC camps. My father, Cecil C. Teets, was in the CCC's. I believe he was at Camp Parsons, but I'm not positive. Thanks.

I wrote my masters thesis on the CCC. Am willing to share copies of it with historians, who might be interested.

Bob Mundell

My Dad, Guy Mundell, and late Father in Law Howard Workman, were both in the CCC at Camp Tygart in Randolph Co. WV.
They both spoke highly of their experience there.
My Dad is 93 and still talks about the guys he served with and the work they done.
I still have several of the Camp newsletters, and 2 Company pictures from Camp Tygart,that I have been thinking of donating to the Museum if they were wanted.

My aunt Virginia Nelson from Petersburg wv , was part of the eary years of the WV CCC camps

There were around 8500 women in the CCC. The women's organization was originally known by another name, but because the origin was associated with the CCC, women in the CCC stuck.

My interest is discovering when and where my father participated in a CCC camp in West Virginia or perhaps Ohio in the late '30s.

James Hinebaugh

My father (Morris Hinebaugh) was a member of the CCC and worked in WV. As a teenager he brought me to many places in WV to trout fish in the areas he had worked. He passed in 1980 but his time with the CCC was one of the fondest memories of his life. I still camp and fish in many of the parks and camping areas created by my Dad and other people like him while members of the CCC.

I have only heard rumors that my father was in CCC. I hate to send money I do not have if it isn't true. Is there some list that I may check prior to getting records? His name was Robert Lionel Gross bd 4/29/29

Something like this should happen again, then our nations young men could learn to work again. They are now in need of a handout, this would be a hand up.

I recently found a CCC lapel pin for a surveyor, I think. It is a shield shape, with a black banner and the letters CCC, below the banner half the shield is white with a silver transit, the other half blue with two evergreen trees. All in all the lapel pin is about 1/2 inch tall. Anyone with information on that type pin is welcome to email me.
