Following is an item I found on the "Shamrock" Rootsweb list. The website
looks interesting and promising for some American research on our families.

Here's an interesting site (footnote.com) that lets you view and display
> a wide variety of historic documents -- including a zillion or so from
> the US National Archives. And it's also a "Web 2.0" site, in that it
> lets you comment and share with others through the site. At present
> there are more than 15 million documents, the site sez.
>
> You seem to get a lot for free, but there are varying degrees of
> membership with additional benefits, including downloads. Best of all,
> unlike our friends at Ance$$$try.com, you don't need to supply a credit
> card number for the free trial. Yes, the focus is on the US. What can I
say?

> the site's blog: http://blog.footnote.com/; definitely worth visiting.
