DiscoverFreedmen.org Provides FREE Geneological Records for Black People in US

Records-SlaveryI just read that:

Millions of African Americans will soon be able to trace their families through the era of slavery, some to the countries from which their ancestors were snatched, thanks to a new and free online service that is digitizing a huge cache of federal records for the first time.

The website will be discoverfreedmen.org and records should be available late 2016. “All the records are expected to be online by late 2016, to coincide with the opening of the new Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture on the National Mall in Washington.”
