Re: M1901, Arkansas - Marriage Records

One of the duties of the Freedmen's Bureau was to 'solemnize' the marriages of former slaves. Some of these records were entered into local county/parish marriage books. Other, however, were only recorded in the records of The Bureau of Refugees, Freedmen and Abandoned Lands (RG 105).

Follow the link for an explanation of the significance of these records, which can be viewed at local NARA Regional Archives or borrowed directly from NARA. Each Microfilm roll can also be purchased from the National Archives.
