The "Freedman's Bureau" records are a collection of labor related records from the years 1865 to 1872.  The Bureau was created at the end of the civil war to supervise the relief efforts like education, employment, health care, etc.

The records may give you names, birth dates, locations, spouses names, occupations, and, perhaps, death dates.
