    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.

    African and Native American Research with Angela Walton-Raji

    in History

    Genealogist Angela Walton-Raji has committed herself to sharing information with the descendants of the Freedmen of Indian Territory--which is now Oklahoma. She is the author of  the book Black Indian Genealogy Research: African American Ancestors Among the Five Civilized Tribes. The book serves as a guide to researching the history and lives of the 20,000 Freedmen of Indian Territory, who have been deleted from American history. She is also the author of the http://african-nativeamerican.blogspot.com.


    The Dawes Commission, named after Henry C. Dawes who chaired the commission, consisted of a process that would lead to a redistribution of land to those who already owned it among the Five "Civilized" Tribes. Understand that land was held in common by the Five Civilized Tribes. The Dawes Enrollment process was created to determine who would be eligible for allotted parcels of land. Eligibility involved providing "proof" that one had been a part of the tribe for several decades, and especially in those years immediately following the Civil War. So one had to prove that one had been a part of the Indian Community since 1866. For those whose ancestors were enslaved by members of the Tribes, (the Freedmen)  they had to often provide proof that their former enslaver was a member of the tribe.

    The Giants Beat Podcast: Free Agency Preview

    in Football

    As the first moves begin to trickle as the Giants prepare for free agency, join David Aitken and Aaron Yorke as they discuss a number of key topics for Big Blue heading into the new league year. Was franchising Jason Pierre-Paul the right move? With 2014 starters Mathias Kiwanuka and JD Walton released, are more soon to follow? Jerry Reese must also make decisions on a host of pending free agents like Antrel Rolle. New York was incredibly active last offseason in free agency but the team does not look to have the resources set to manage similar spending. With that in mind, where does Jerry Reese prioritize? How key is the draft for the Giants this season, with the team holding a top ten pick in the draft for the first time since 2004?

    It's a new year and people are hitting the gym to improve cardiovascular health, build muscle, and of course, get back down to that perfect dress size, but working out has some mental benefits, too. For the past decade or so science has studied how exercising can boost brain function. Regardless of age or fitness level (yes, the mall-walkers to marathoners both count), studies show that making time for exercise provides some serious mental benefits.
