The Freedmen’s Bureau Project is helping African Americans reconnect with their Civil War­-era ancestors. Join us in restoring thousands of records, and begin building your own family tree.

LEAD US INTO THE LIGHT----

THE FREEDMEN’S BUREAU

Emancipation freed nearly 4 million slaves. The Freedmen’s Bureau was established to help transition them from slavery to citizenship, providing food, housing, education, and medical care. And for the first time in U.S. history, the names of those individuals were systematically recorded and preserved for future generations.

THE PROJECT

To help bring thousands of records to light, the Freedmen’s Bureau Project was created as a set of partnerships between FamilySearch International and the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture, the Afro­-American Historical and Genealogical Society (AAHGS), and the California African American Museum.

Tens of thousands of volunteers are needed to make these records searchable online. No specific time commitment is required, and anyone may participate. Volunteers simply log on, pull up as many scanned documents as they like, and enter the names and dates into the fields provided. Once published, information for millions of African Americans will be accessible, allowing families to build their family trees and connect with their ancestors.----Every name brings us closer to completing this project. The progress meter shows what percentage of the records we’ve indexed so far. But there’s still more work to do. See how you can get involved today to help millions discover their roots.-------

DISCOVER YOUR ROOTS

Begin your own family history by reaching out to parents, grandparents, and any relative who can share stories, photos, or other information.

If you already have the name of ancestors and you would like to find more information, type the name in the field below. This will search FamilySearch.org’s extensive database of more than 5 billion searchable names in historical records and allow you to add them to your own family tree.------

Grow your Family Tree

Begin building your own family tree for free at FamilySearch.org. Link photographs, stories, and memories to your parents, grandparents, and other ancestors, and discover other records that let you uncover roots and branches you never knew about.-----

SHARE YOUR EXPERIENCE

Once you’ve begun to discover your roots, you’ll want to share your experience with others. Let family and friends know the connections you’re making to your past, and allow them to piece together their own history. Share on social media with #DiscoverFreedmen.
