Find the Historical, Serious and Quirky on Fold3

The research resources just keep getting better for students, genealogists and historians. The Library has subscribed to a new, online resource called Fold3 History and Genealogy Archives*. You know it’s good because librarians like it -- many of our local history staff already have personal subscriptions and find it extremely valuable in their research.

You can find it by going online to thelibrary.org/genealogy or thelibrary.org/history, and look for Fold3.

Fold3 is rich with photographs and detail: census records, state records, city directories, naturalization records and index, and original, historical documents from pre-U.S. Revolutionary War through the Vietnam War. There are milestone documents including the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and its amendments, the March on Washington and the Purchase of Alaska.

If your interests are more extra-terrestrial, there’s even a collection of documents from Project Blue Book – UFO Investigations. These are text descriptions of encounters or sightings from 1947-1969 from Alaska to Florida to Labrador.

The African-American Archives includes original documents revealing their integral role in the achievement and development of the United States. Fold3 also includes the Dawes Roll packets for those researching their Native American ancestors, and the U.S. Bureau of Investigation Case File Archive.

Civil War researchers will find Matthew Brady Civil War photos, the Lincoln Assassination Papers and the Confederate Citizens Files.
There’s more: newspapers including the London Times and Chicago Tribune; and especially helpful for school projects – an archive for World War I and II that include documents and photographs.
