Footnote.com Sponsors Eastman’s Online Genealogy News

Dick Eastman has announced that Footnote, Inc., has agreed to become the exclusive sponsor of his newsletter effective immediately.

In his announcement, he stated, “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 has promised, "We will continue to add millions of original documents and images monthly."

This is a great online service for genealogists, historians, re-enactors, students, teachers, and others.

I’ll have some personal views on this online resource in the coming days.
