FamilySearch Indexing Update: Freedmen Letters from North Carolina Will Help Expand Popular African American Collection Online

The following is from FamilySearch.

25 June 2010
A project to index Freedmen Letters from North Carolina is now available. This is the second Freedmen’s Bureau collection FamilySearch has worked on with the National Archives. These records provide the earliest major compilation of information on many emancipated slaves, freed Blacks, and Black Union soldiers, including names, marriages, education and employment information, and receipt of rations, health care, and legal support.
