    1. [NC-FREEDMEN] Migration of NC Freedmen to Deep South
    2. Deloris Williams via
    3. This List has been silent for many years but here’s something for those of you who still subscribe. For many people researching their enslaved ancestors becomes even more difficult when the first sighting of them is in the 1870 or 1880 Census in a State but their birthplace is indicated to be another State. Some may have been moved there at some point by their slave owners, some may have moved there after serving in the US Colored Troops in the Civil War, or some may have just moved there in order to find work. Among the records of the Freedmens' Bureau, are records of former slaves signing up in North Carolina to work on plantations in the Deep South. There are letters from those running the Freedmens' Bureau indicating that the western part of North Carolina became a gathering place for former slaves from all over the State expecting to find jobs. It became so bad, that many Freedmen were desperate in the need to feed themselves and their families, and so when the formerly prosperous plantation owners from States like Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, Texas, etc. came to the Freedmens' Bureau offering jobs, shelter, clothing & food for the formerly enslaved, it was looked at as a way to get rid of the huge problem in NC, but as a lifesaver to the now freed slaves. They signed up by the hundreds, maybe even by the thousands, and with the Federal Government footing the bill, were transported to their new homes in the South. I've transcribed the lists of Freedmen who signed up from the Freedmen's case files for 1867. Maybe some of you will find your own ancestors among them. They are listed on 13 pages I've created starting from here: http://www.ncgenweb.us/ncstate/afam/freedmen.htm Deloris Williams Administrator-NC-FREEDMEN List

    3. Hi Everybody, Please ignore the previous message that came through earlier today which contained no subject along with nothing but a link in the message. It was sent from someone's email address which has apparently been hijacked and has now been moderated by me to stop any further messages coming through from it. Do NOT click onto any link on messages that come through Mailing Lists because those messages are almost always nothing but SPAM which contain links that can possibly harm your computer. If you have mistakenly clicked onto that link, I do suggest that you stop everything else you are doing on your computer and do a anti-virus scan and possibly an anti-malware scan, since some av programs seem to miss certain malware. Whatever you do, you can help protect your computer by making sure you have anti-virus software which is updated regularly and to set it to scan your computer at least daily. Thanks for your cooperation. Deloris Williams List Administrator NC-FREEDMEN

    3. Hello all, I just wanted to let everyone know that I have put my family history online at http://www.allthroughtheages.com/indexfamilytree.htm Please feel free to look around it and let me know of any errors, omissions, etc. THIS IS A WORK IN PROGRESS so when looking through it understand that. I appreciate any and all comments on it. I am but human and there will probably be mistakes so just shoot me an email and I will get to it. I want to thank everyone that has helped me get this far in my research and I have further to go yet, but without help I would not have been able to get this far. I decided to go ahead and put online what I have so far as if I keep putting it off it will never be online and then someone may not be able to utilize it. I have many many surnames and many areas of the US that are on this. You will find some links that are not up yet as I am slowly getting them together. I will be placing photos online with these pages soon so keep checking back and if there is anything that you would like to add to it please feel free to email me.
