Footnote and National Archives Launch Site

The big day has finally come and Footnote and the National Archives have begun the launch of the website This site is primarily a history site and they are working at digitizing historical documents for our use. What does this mean for genealogy? The site is providing digitalized historical such as: Southern Claims Commission; Civil War Photos; Alphabetical Index to Petitions for Naturalization of the US District Court [and Circuit Court] for the Southern District of New York, 1824-1941; Southern Claims Commission and much more. This is truly worth your time in viewing. The site is also providing a free database of Pennsylvania Archives dating from 1625–1880. For a complete write up on the database, go to my links and click on EOGN Eastman's Online Genealogical Newsletter or click EOGN where Richard Eastman reviews this site this week.

You can also view a video tour that placed on Youtube below.
