I am delighted to announce that Footnote, Inc., has agreed to become the exclusive sponsor of this newsletter. The agreement is in effect now.
Footnote, Inc. made a big splash in the genealogy community a few days ago when the company announced an agreement with the National Archives and Records Administration to place digital images of millions of original documents online. Four and a half million images are already available at www.footnote.com, and that number is growing fast. Footnote CEO Russell Wilding stated, "We will continue to add millions of original documents and images monthly."
I had a chance to work with Footnote, Inc., last summer and fall on their beta web site testing. I was impressed with their business plans and their determination to create a huge online resource. This is a great online service for genealogists, historians, re-enactors, students, teachers, and others and will become even more valuable as time goes by.
Please join me in welcoming Footnote, Inc., as the exclusive sponsor of this newsletter.
