    Mapping the Freedmen's Bureau with Angela Walton-Raji and Toni Carrier

    in History


    Did you know that the majority of Freedmen's Bureau records are now digitized and available online for free, as well as the records of other institutions that served newly-freed African Americans during Reconstruction? Angela Walton-Raji and Toni Carrier have built a new website called "Mapping the Freedmen's Bureau - An Interactive Research Guide" (www.mappingthefreedmensbureau.com) to assist researchers in locating and accessing records of the Freedmen's Bureau, Freedmen's hospitals, contraband camps and Freedman's Bank branches. Researchers can use the website's interactive map to learn which of these services were located near their area of research interest. If the records are online, the map provides a link to the records that tell the stories of newly-freed former slaves in the American south. The goal of this mapping project is to provide researchers, from the professional to the novice, a useful tool to more effectively tell the family story, the local history and the greater story of the nation during Reconstruction.


    Angela Walton-Raji is an author, genealogist, guest lecturer and producer of the weekly African Roots Podcast and Toni Carrier  is the Founder of LowcountryAfricana, a free website dedicated to African American genealogy and history in SC, GA and FL.

    Brian Cohen Strategies of Success Speakers Bureau

    in Business

    Brian Cohen - That is me, Talks about the New Year - That is now.
    Strategies of Success Speakers Bureau - that is us. 


    2006 I joined Toastmasters and have learned much about public speaking and what a truly good presentation should include


    2008 brought a few changes in my day job that prompted me to really reflect on what I want to do, what I am good at and what needs of the community I want to focus on.


    2010 I gave a speech at my Toastmasters club and stated that I wanted to speak to 5000 people over the course of the year, the "evaluation" of that comment asked my why not at one time? Within weeks I was on a radio show speaking to way more than 5000 and I have been growing ever since.


    The question has always been the business. What is the business?


    This program will answer that question and many others.

The Bureau was responsible for the supervision and management of all matters relating to refugees and freedmen, and of lands abandoned or seized during the Civil War.


    Sharon Batiste Gillins is a native of Galveston, Texas with paternal ancestral roots in St. Mary Parish, Louisiana and maternal roots in Fort Bend County, Texas.

While researching her own family, she developed an in interest in unique and under-utilized record systems and record groups.  Some of her more recent work focuses on strategies researchers can use to analyze Louisiana’s Freedmen’s Bureau field office records for revealing, often personal information on freedmen ancestors.



    Ms. Gillins is a member of the Galveston Historical Society, National Genealogical Society, and Afro-American Historical and Genealogical Society.  A retired Associate Professor at Riverside City College, she frequently calls upon her career background as a college educator to present workshops or deliver courses at regional and national conferences and genealogical institutes.   She is also a member of the adjunct faculty at Samford Institute of Genealogy and Historical Research in Birmingham.

Instrumental in the conviction was a videotape he had one of their children film while he was abusing her.
