Tracing African American Ancestors: Records of the Freedmen’s Bureau
During the U.S. Civil War, many enslaved individuals fled to Union Army camps, seeking protection. The army helped set up and organize refugee camps with schools, hospitals, enlistment centers, and offered other aid. Following the war, the U.S. Federal Government formalized these services and established the Bureau of Refugees, Freedmen, and Abandoned Lands (Freedmen’s Bureau). The records created during this time period are invaluable for African American research. Come learn about the history of the Bureau, its records, and what you can discover about your ancestors.
