Footnote Becomes Fold3


As I am sure you all have heard by now that Footnote.com is now Fold3.

Footnote has been such a great resource over the past few years for finding military records, some census records and a bunch of random genealogical goodies. I have used it many times in my personal research as well as for clients here at ProGenealogists.

One exciting thing I discovered while learning about the name change is also the fact that their website is formatted for mobile devices! I usually read all the blogs I subscribe to on my phone, so when I clicked the link taking me to the new website I saw that it was a mobile version.

I played around for a few minutes with it and saw that you can browse through various collections, search for individual records and people and also view the original records! I am a big fan of doing my genealogy “on the go” so I was very excited to see that I could access this website on my mobile devices. In my opinion, you never know when you might need to look up a record or want to show a family member something you found earlier and being able to do that anywhere is really cool.

Do you use mobile websites or mobile apps to do your genealogical research? Let us know which ones have helped you find your ancestors!
