Introduction to the Freedmen’s Bureau

A Legacy Family Tree Webinar by Angela Walton-Raji

Newly freed slaves needed assistance with food, shelter, rations, and work for pay. The Bureau of Refugees, Freedmen, and Abandoned Lands—or simply The Freedmen’s Bureau—served the purpose of providing such aid. This webinar will focus on the records from the Bureau and how these records will open doors before 1870 for the African-American Family. Please join us on 20 September 2017 at 2pm in the Computer Lab at the Augusta-Richmond County Public Library main branch for this informative lesson. Space is limited so please call (706)826-1511 to reserve your spot!
