Footnote is a subscription-based website that features searchable,
original documents that provide users a view of the events, places and people
that shaped the American nation and the world. The site will have over 25
million digital images by the end of 2007. Footnote is currently working with
FamilySearch to index the American Revolutionary War Pension files. Additional
projects with FamilySearch are under development.

Individuals with Footnote subscriptions will be able to sign in with the
same Footnote username and password they use at home in order to save, annotate,
and upload content.

Godfrey Memorial Library has an extensive collection of essential
resources to assist genealogical and historical research. Resources include
newspapers, city and business directories, vital records, printed census
records, state, county, and local histories, as well as numerous family
histories, family bible records, and service and pension records.

Heritage Quest online includes the complete set of U.S. Federal Census
images from 1790 to 1930 including names and indexes for many of the sets. Users
will be able to find people and places located in over 20,000 published family
and local histories and PERSI, an index of over 1.9 million genealogy and local
history articles. Other online databases include Revolutionary War Pension,
Bounty-Land Warrant Application files, and the Freedman Bank Records.

Access to this service will be limited to 1,400 family history centers in
North America. Patrons should contact their local family history center to see
if this service is available. Family history center directors should contact
Family History Center Support with questions.

Kindred Konnections has over 230 million pedigree linked names with
submitter information. The online pedigrees are not merged, but maintained by
individual patrons. There are additional databases of birth, marriage, death,
and census records that are automatically searched along with the pedigree
linked data. Segments of pedigrees can be downloaded.

World Vital Records provides access to research helps and has a wide
variety of international records, including more than 60 parish registers,
Scottish death records, UK marriages, and Irish prisoner records. There are more
than 300 newspapers with 100,000 pages added a month, and over 500 online
databases, including vital, military, land, pension records, reference
materials, family histories, maps, gazetteers, and international coops. With the
recent Quintin Publications partnership, World Vital Records will soon have more
than 10,000 databases online. At least one new database is added every business
