Footnote at KPL!
Imagine being able to view millions of historical documents never before available on the Internet. Well, now you can at KPL with Footnote.com, our newest subscription database. Footnote has partnered with the National Archives to provide access to millions of items from their collection. But that’s just the beginning. There are also scanned images of assorted city directories, newspapers, state and city records, and many other interesting items useful to genealogists and other historical researchers. Footnote also allows members to contribute to the site through annotation of existing pages or by creating their own pages and uploading photos, scans, or even videos. With more than 47 million documents already online and an average of 2 million more being added each month, Footnote is an amazing resource. It can be accessed with full privileges for viewing and printing premium documents at the central library and all KPL branches.
