This vital indexing project created from the partnerships of FamilySearch, NARA, the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History & Culture, the Afro-American Historical & Genealogy Society, and California African American Museum will help African Americans reconnect with their Civil War-era ancestors. Supportive volunteers are needed to take these valuable historical records and index them so that they are available to the public. For more info, see discoverfreedmen.org
