Webinar Description

Mississippi, like many other states has rich genealogical data for African American research, most of which can be found in traditional places---census, vital records, local courthouse records. However, this state also offers some unique records from the period of the Civil War, the era of freedom and emancipation, and also records reflecting families to ties with Native American communities. There were 31 branches of the Freedmen's Bureau throughout Mississippi. There were 11 regiments of the United States Colored troops representing over 10,000 men of African descent in the Union Army from the state. In addition to many of those collections, are resources from the Educable Children's list, Southern Claims Commission records of black homesteaders. This session will explore some of those rich resources and methods of finding them.
