May 7, 2016 — Index-a-thon of the Freedmen’s Bureau Records

Saturday, May 7th is an area-wide Index-a-thon to help finish the indexing and arbitration of the remainder of the Freedman’s Bureau records.  These records must be finished by June so that a database can be prepared for the opening of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture in September.

Anyone who can help with this very important work can index records from the Freedman’s Bureau from any location you want, by downloading the free indexing software and selecting that project from the indexing program on the website.  Any questions, please contact Barbara Branham at 293-4404.
