Transportation Records of the Freedmen’s Bureau - free webinar by Angela Walton-Raji now online for limited time
The recording of today's webinar, "Transportation Records of the Freedmen’s Bureau" by Angela Walton-Raji is now available to view at www.FamilyTreeWebinars.com for free for a limited time.
The Bureau of Refugees, Freedmen and Abandoned Lands are full of data reflecting newly freed slaves and their adapting to life after the Civil War. Among the lesser known records are those reflecting the movement of families in the years between 1865 – 1872. Some needed assistance in going back to communities were they were born, others were seeking a chance to begin new lives elsewhere. The records of various field offices vary in how the movement of former slaves were handled and there was no particular pattern in how they were documented. But transportation records reflect amazing data about the first voluntary migration of people of color during those post-Civil War years. This workshop will illustrate the content of these records, and how to locate them in the various Bureau field offices throughout the South.
