About Fold3

Fold3 provides convenient access to US military records, including the stories, photos, and personal documents of the men and women who served. Original records at Fold3 help you discover and share stories about these everyday heroes, forgotten soldiers, and the families that supported them.

Fold3 is a subscription-based website specializing in historical military records primarily from the United States. It also has a large collection of documents dealing with the United States, city directories, and newspapers. Some record sets are free but the majority are accessible only by paid subscription. The website was originally named Footnote.com and independently owned when it launched in 2007. Footnote.com was acquired by Ancestry.com= in fall 2010. As part of the acquisition, Footnote.com was later rebranded as Fold3 in an effort to focus on military records.
