     Footnote.com recently changed its focus to military records, and has renamed itself "Fold3" to reflect that change. (The third fold in the flag folding ceremony honors the sacrifices of our veterans). I explored the site briefly, and I believe that Fold3 has retained the former non-military Footnote databases, such as naturalization records and city directories. The search engine remains unwieldy as ever--a factor that has often caused me to give up my Footnote searches and membership in exasperation.
(I am not endorsing Fold3 or Footnote).
