“Freedman’s Bureau Records”
An encore presentation!
A free viewing period of the recorded webinar will be 4-6 August 2017.

About the Webinar:

   Are you seeking records for your southern ancestors in the immediate post-Civil War time period (1865-1868)? Learn about this little known and used Federal record collection that is full of invaluable records for many ancestors, regardless of skin color or circumstances, who lived in North Carolina (or elsewhere from Delaware to Texas). After the war many people needed assistance, from maimed soldiers, to widows with children, to the aged and feeble, to ex-slaves and their former owners. Examples of records relating to rations, contracts and indentures, courts, abandoned land, schools, hospitals, and more are presented.

Webinar Viewing Options
• The free public three-day viewing of the recorded webinar will be 4–6 August 2017.
• After the free replay weekend, the webinar and accompanying handout PDF will be accessible on the website to NCGS members as a member benefit.*
 • Full audio/video webinars on CD (playable on a computer) may be purchased by anyone from the NCGS Store. Webinar CDs also include the handout PDF.
