Free Access to Select Records during Black History Month

February is designated as “Black History Month”. In recognition of that some of our favorite subscription databases are opening certain databases to the public for free and other have contests open to all.

  • Footnote.com – Free access to include original historical records from the Amistad case, the program for the 1963 March on Washington and the Southern Claims Commission records from the Civil War. The Southern Claims Commission records are a must for those who can trace back to the Civil War era. Even those denied claims have documents.
