The Native American Collection

The latest collection on Footnote.com is the Native American collection which was released yesterday. Working together with the National Archives and Allen County Library, Footnote.com has created a unique collection that will help people discover new details about Native American history. The Footnote Interactive Native American Collection features original historical documents including:

Footnote.com’s Native American Collection creates an interactive environment where members can search, annotate, and add comments to the original documents. Additionally, visitors can view pages for many of the Native American tribes that include historical events on a time line and map, a photo gallery, stories and comments added by the community.

Footnote.com also provides a free service where visitors can create their own web pages for their Native American family. “Native Americans have a rich oral history,” explains Russ Wilding, CEO of Footnote.com. “We hope that the online community will use Footnote Pages to preserve these stories, which will help ensure that they do not become lost to future generations.”

  1. Gotta tell you, the OneGreatFamily search boxes are in two places on the page, and it is nearly impossible to figure out how to search a specific collection at Footnote.com.

    Gotta clean up the search experience for typical users.

    Otherwise, keep up the good work,
    Myrt :)
