I came across the Footnote.com site today through a news article which suggested they added 3 million Revolutionary War pension files, thanks to a deal with FamilySearch. Footnote.com currently adds about 2 million documents each month from the National Archives. Footnote.com let’s users annotate entries, tag them and create communities around historical topics.
I had not come across the site and raced to see what they had to offer. The site looked great and the concept was a winner. So what’s my problem? Well they expect you to pay!
Site like Footnote just don’t get it. This information should be free to all.
