Footnote.com is now Fold3
Fold3, formerly Footnote.com, is a website that provides access to US military records, including the stories, photos, and personal documents of the men and women who served. The Fold3 name comes from a traditional flag folding ceremony in which the third fold is made in honor and remembrance of veterans who served in defense of their country and to maintain peace throughout the world. Original records at Fold3 help you discover and share stories about these everyday heroes, forgotten soldiers, and the families that supported them. You can combine records found on the site with what you have in your own albums and shoeboxes to create an online memorial for someone who served. Fold3 is a paid subscription site; however it is FREE at the Family History Library. Also offered is a 7-day free trial, during which time you can access all records without a charge. Check it out at Fold3.com!
