Talk:African American Freedmen's Bureau Records

I think the title and description of this collection should match that at archives.gov.


To not include who all is documented in this resource may lead some not to look there. Notice the description at the NARA site:


"Historians have used these materials to explore government and military policies, local conditions, and interactions between freedpeople, local white populations, and Bureau officials."


I am working with people with Southern white ancestry who did not realize this is a valuable resource for them. 


The title should also include the date like at Nara: The Freedmen's Bureau Records, 1865-1872
