    Records of Post-Civil War Federal Agencies at NARA - Reginald Washington

    in History

    The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) is the official repository of the permanently valuable records of the U.S. Government.  NARA's vast holdings document the lives and experiences of persons who interacted with the Federal Government.  The records created by post-Civil War Federal Agencies are perhaps some of the most important records available for the study of black family life and genealogy.  This discussion will focus on NARA's Reference Information Paper 108.


    This reference information paper describes three post-Civil War Federal agencies' records: the Bureau of Refugees, Freedmen, and Abandoned Lands; the Freedman's Savings and Trust Company; and the Commissioners of Claims. Case examples will be shared to illustrate the value of researching these important records.


    Reginald Washington is a retired archivist/ genealogy specialist with the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). He lectures frequently on records and research procedures at the National Archives, and has served as the African-American Genealogy Subject Area Specialist at NARA. He has spoken at conferences of the Afro-American Historical and Genealogical Society, National Genealogical Society, Federation of Genealogical Societies, National Institute on Genealogical Research, and numerous local genealogical societies and clubs.

    City of Ferguson vs Washington Post

    in Politics

    The following is a statement on the incident from Washington Post Executive Editor Martin D. Baron:Wesley has briefed us on what occurred, and there was absolutely no justification for his
    arrest.He was illegally instructed to stop taking video of officers. Then he followed officers’ instructions to leave a McDonald’s — and after contradictory instructions on how to exit, he was slammed against a soda machine and then handcuffed. That behavior was wholly unwarranted and an assault on the freedom of the press to cover the news. The physical risk to Wesley himself is obvious and outrageous.

    A Vietnam Veteran's March on Washington DC

    in Health

    I recently read an article that stated that roughly 300,000 veterans have died from agent orange, that's roughly 5 times as many as
    the 58,000 that died in combat there! These are astonishing figures. 11 million gallons of AO was sprayed over 200 million acres and much of it in areas used as large bases for
    US troops. This has put over 300 million Vietnam vets and their families at risk. One soldier put it this way, "you know we all took a bullet there, some of us just didn't know it". That bullet, that wound has never healed. It has never even been recognized as a wound. When will he people and the government of the United States begin to realize the bad hand we were dealt? When will the government realize that perhaps there should be 300,000 names on that wall, with plenty of space left over in Washington, DC?  Our group is not about posting photos, bringing up good or bad memories, it's about solidarity in holding the chemical companies, the US government and the Veterans Administration responsible for what they have done to us. There have been many injustices imposed upon various peoples, factions and groups. We are one faction, one group that has been overlooked. Isn't it about time we
    did something about this? I am going to dedicate our next broadcast to establish a march on Washington DC and our cause that he did in Selma, Alabama. March with US Mr. president!
