This class will teach participants four strategies to locate their enslaved ancestors. Participants will learn how to do a survey, find various documents to help determine where their ancestors were enslaved and who their owners were. It will also help them learn how to use the newly indexed Freedmen's Bureau Records.
In addition, participants will learn how to keep track of the survey information that cannot go into a family tree. They will learn how to use OneNote to keep track of documents, names, and locations that they can retrieve to add additional information or use for citations.
