Footnote.com Changes Course, Becomes Fold3
Lindon, Utah-based Footnote.com, the online historical records site focused on family history, said Thursday that it has changed its focus to historical, U.S. military records, and changed its name to Fold3. Footnote said the change will now focus on U.S. military records, photos and stories on those who have served in the military. Fold3 refers to the third fold in a traditional military flag folding ceremony. Footnote did not say why it decided to make the switch. Footnote/Fold3 is a subsidiary of family history and genealogy firm Ancestry.com; the company actually acquired Fold3 when it purchased iArchives last year.
