Heritage Quest - Freedman's Bank

E-mail Print PDF

Heritage Quest Online - See Who You Can Find!

Freedman's Bank 1865-1874

The Freedman's Savings and Trust Company was incorporated in 1865 by an act signed by President Abraham Lincoln. The purpose of the company was to create an institution where former slaves and their dependents could place and save their money. Twenty-nine of the thirty-seven branches of the bank had records that have survived and been microfilmed.

Freedman's Bank Records is a great source for genealogists researching their African American heritage because of the amount of personal information recorded for each individual in it. Be sure to view the corresponding image of the original document associated with your ancestor in order to obtain all possible information available for them.

Click on the Heritage Quest link on the top menu of this website.
Away from the library, log in with the barcode on your library card.
Click Search at the top of the Heritage Quest Online page and scroll down to Freedman's Bank.

Did you know that the boundaries for the counties/parishes that your ancestors lived in could have changed during the course of their lifetime?

The Map Guide to U.S. Federal Censuses shows county/parish outline maps at ten-year intervals. The old boundaries are superimposed over the modern lines. These maps will help you find your ancestors in the correct county/parish when doing record searches.

See What You Can Find! Click on the the graphic at the left or on Heritage Quest on the top menu of this website. Once on Heritage Quest Online look for the Maps button at the top of the page.
