AUGUST 2021



ANNOUNCING THE EIGHTH

ST. TAMMANY GENEALOGICAL
SOCIETY WEBINAR –

AUGUST 28, 2021 – ONLINE!


American Heritage: The Records of the National Archives and Records Administration; the Bureau of Refugees, Freedmen, and Abandoned Lands; and the New Orleans Freedmen's Hospital

with John Deeben


This presentation will provide an overview of the basic records of the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) and its website, with a special emphasis on the records of the Bureau of Refugees, Freemen, and Abandoned Lands.  The overview will be followed by a detailed description of the records of an important facility established after the Civil War: the Freedmen's Hospital of New Orleans. 


The historical background and organization of the hospital will be explored through a review of various administrative records that reveal how the hospital operated, as well as the identity of the patients who were treated there and the types of care they received.  The lecture also addresses how the records have been preserved and may be accessed for research.

The presenter, John P. Deeben, is an archivist with the Archives I Reference Section (RRIR) at NARA in Washington, DC.  John provides reference assistance for military records from the Revolutionary War to the beginning of the 20th century.  He has spoken at conferences of the National Genealogical Society (NGS), the Federation of Genealogical Societies (FGS), Daughters of the American Revolution, National Institute of Genealogical Research, and the National War of 1812 Symposium.  His articles have appeared in numerous genealogical journals and magazines.
