Dear Ms. Cafarelli,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the State Project Reports and Research Publications, 1933 - 1943 in the Records of the Work Projects Administration (Record Group 69) that includes a file unit titled F 630.G2 Iowa Graves Registration and War Records Survey Manual of Instructions (1938) which may list John Conarty if he was a veteran. For more information about these records, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) at email@example.com.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDT2. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
Since some WPA records are held locally, we suggest that you contact the State Historical Society of Iowa: State Archives and Records Program for additional information about surveys of cemeteries.
We also suggest that you contact the Iowa Department of Public Health to obtain a death certificate for John Conarty, using all possible name variants in order to identify the cemetery where he may be buried. We also suggest that you review NARA’s Resources for Genealogists, as well as the History Hub Blog titled Suggestions and Advice for Family History Researchers.
You may wish to contact The National Archives of Ireland for any genealogical information pertaining to John Conarty while in Ireland before he emigrated to the United States.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
