Join genealogist, Sharon Batiste Gillins for a discussion of Record Group 105 of the Bureau of Refugees, Freedmen, and Abandoned Lands. She will share her experiences in locating records in this rich genealogical resource available at the National Archives.
The Freedmen's Bureau was established in the War Department by an act of Congress on March 3, 1865. The life of the Bureau was extended twice by acts of July 16, 1866 and July 6, 1868. 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. A life-long interest in her family's history led to an active involvement in researching African American family history over the past 25 years. 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.

Author Sadeqa Johnson;
Sadeqa- Love in a Carry-on Bag is finally finished! It’s been a long time coming. Can you believe I have been lugging this story around for over ten years? I’m talking about before I was married, bought a house and birthed any of my three children. I’ve worked feverishly on these characters during naptime, between feedings, in the midst of sleep deprivation with a sheer desperation to produce a story that will burn your fingers as you gobble up the pages. Trust and believe it hasn’t been easy and I’ve had to hush and crush those voices of self-doubt, fear and anxiety that kept urging me to give up, put on my Jones New York and find a job. It’s with pride that I stayed the course and after many ups and downs, false starts, agents coming and going, and almost-publishing-deals we have arrived!
Along this wonderful journey called life, I’ve also discovered the power of meditation and the importance of being Present to each moment. It’s so easy to become consumed with the ever growing to-do list in our heads and never stop to enjoy the blossoms of the tree. I’ve been leading a group meditation class for over three years and if you’ll take a look at my inspirational blog, www.sadeqajohnson.com, you will see that I’m quite candid about what I’ve been through, go through and the lessons that I’ve learned that continue to root me and lead me closer to who I really am.
Love, Light and Laughter!

Sharon Weil continues her discussion with Robert Litman, breath and movement educator. This time they discuss how rather than an emotional issue, anxiety is a breathing issue that triggers an emotional response. Quite a revelation! More than 20% of the population suffers from anxiety, and Robert shows how this can be regulated by breathing exercises.
