Footnote.com has the largest collection of digital images from original source documents on the Web. Through a partnership with the U.S. Government’s National Archives and Records Administration, Footnote is digitizing a vast collection of original documents that have been inaccessible to the masses before now.

But Footnote goes beyond providing access to old records. Building on the Web 2.0 collaboration and sharing model, Footnote offers Story Pages, a place on the Footnote site where users can share their knowledge and research with others. Story Pages lets users write what they know, attach original sources that support their story and invite others to share their insights.

Some of the documents available at Footnote.com include:

  • Revolutionary War Pension Files
  • Mathew B. Brady Collection of Civil War Photographs
  • Papers of the Continental Congress
  • Southern Claims Commission
  • Constitutional Convention Records
  • Civil War Pension Index
