Description of some of the above databases

Footnote is a subscription-based website that features searchable,
original documents that provide users a view of the events, places and people
that shaped the American nation and the world. The site will have over 25
million digital images by the end of 2007. Footnote is currently working with
FamilySearch to index the American Revolutionary War Pension files. Additional
projects with FamilySearch are under development.

Individuals with Footnote subscriptions will be able to sign in with the
same Footnote username and password they use at home in order to save, annotate,
and upload content.

Godfrey Memorial Library has an extensive collection of essential
resources to assist genealogical and historical research. Resources include
newspapers, city and business directories, vital records, printed census
records, state, county, and local histories, as well as numerous family
histories, family bible records, and service and pension records.

Heritage Quest online includes the complete set of U.S. Federal Census
images from 1790 to 1930 including names and indexes for many of the sets. Users
will be able to find people and places located in over 20,000 published family
and local histories and PERSI, an index of over 1.9 million genealogy and local
history articles. Other online databases include Revolutionary War Pension,
Bounty-Land Warrant Application files, and the Freedman Bank Records.

Access to this service will be limited to 1,400 family history centers in
North America. Patrons should contact their local family history center to see
if this service is available. Stake Temple and Family History Consultant - Center should contact
Family History Center Support with questions.

variety of international records, including more than 60 parish registers,
