Freedmen's Bureau Records

National Museum of African American History and Culture, Family Search (a non-profit family history organization associated with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) and the National Archives and Records Administration joined forces to create an online, searchable database of persons whose names appear in the Freedmenís Bureau records between 1865 and 1872.

We are reaching out to genealogical groups in the area to see if they would be interested in helping to index the records that will form the bulk of this database. Indexing is the process of entering information from historical records into an online, searchable database. More information about the project is found by following this link: http://nmaahc.si.edu/GetInvolved/FreedmensBureau

Cuyahoga County Estate Files -- Completed!

Family Search has completed the project to take the estate packets to 1935! Much thanks to volunteers, missionaries, and the camera crew for a job well done! Thanks to Dorothy Titera for coordinating some of this.

Lake County Estate Files

There is a wonderful new project in Painesville to help unfold and refold the papers in the estate files from 1840-1936. FamilySearch is digitizing them. The project will be going on from 9:30 to 12:30 and 12:30 to 3:30 most workdays from now to completion. Check out the website and sign up to help at http://volunteerlakecounty.wordpress.com This is a great way to "Give Back" to the genealogy community and help others to identify their families. Please spread the word.
