To help millions of African Americans trace their families through the era of slavery, 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. See http://www.discoverfreedmen.org/ for more information.
Sons and Daughters of the United States Middle Passage (SDUSMP) is a lineage society that is a non-profit, charitable 501(c)3 organization dedicated to the memory, education, and historic preservation of the artifacts and landmarks of slavery in the United States and its economic, psychological, and cultural impact on today's society.
