National Archives and Footnote Launch Project to Digitize Historic Documents

National Archives and Footnote Launch Project to Digitize Historic Documents

Archivist of the United States Allen Weinstein and Footnote, Inc. CEO Russell Wilding today announced an agreement to digitize selected records from the vast holdings of the National Archives. The 4.5 million pages that have been digitized so far are now available at www.footnote.com/nara.

This non-exclusive agreement, beginning with the sizeable collection of materials currently on microfilm,will enable researchers and the general public to access millions of newly-digitized images of the National Archives historic records on a subscription basis from the Footnote web site. By February 6, the digitized materials will also be available at no charge in National Archives research rooms in Washington D.C. and regional facilities across the country. After an interval of five years, all images digitized through this agreement will be available at no charge through the National Archives web site.

Digitized materials include:
+ Papers of the Continental Congress (1774-89)
+ Mathew B. Brady Collection of Civil War Photographs
+ Southern Claims Commission.
+ Name Index to Civil War and Later Pension Files
+ Investigative Case Files of the Bureau of Investigation, 1908-22.
