Footnote.com partners with FamilySearch
Great news for researchers. Footnote.com has announced an agreement with FamilySearch, bringing together their combined resources to digitize and make available many large historical collections, as noted in Digital50.com. The first project will be the three million U.S. Revolutionary War Pension files which will be published for the first time online in their entirety. Footnote.com in partnership with the National Archives has digitized over eight million historical records, with more being added each month, estimating over 25 million digitized documents available by the end of the year. As part of the agreement, Footnote.com will be accessible for free in all FamilySearch operated centers worldwide. The article also states that Footnote.com is now offering free seven-day trial memberships.
