Fold3 (the name comes from a traditional flag folding ceremony) provides access to images of more than 420 million records. They’re primarily related to US military service, but also comprise nonmilitary collections that were posted when the site was called Footnote, before Ancestry.com purchased it and refocused it to military records. Many records are from the National Archives and Records Administration. Our guide will help you make the most of this resource to find your relatives’ records.
