I was excited today to see this post by Dick Eastman. Footnote.com has just announced their plans to provide access to the entire U.S. Federal Census with the help of the National Archives. Dick’s blog post includes a long statement from Footnote.com about the unique capibilities that users will have of interacting with the census images. In class Tuesday we discussed tagging the images so that they are more searchable. That is only a small example of what you could do as a member of Footnote.com.
I currently have a subscription to Footnote.com, which has a reasonable price for what they offer. We’ll visit Footnote.com some more during next week’s class.
