If you have not heard of Footnote.com previously, it is a newly launched website that offers access to original documents images – a good number of which have not been previously available on-line. Footnote.com has agreements with the National Archives and with the Allen County Public Library to scan and index original documents. One of my favorites sets of images they have is the Alabama Civil War Soldiers Service Record index cards. As of today they are 96% complete. A nice thing about the site is that you get a very readable preview of the image (which is great if you don’t subscribe). There are many other databases and I encourage you to check them out here.
