Footnote is an excellent source to print military service records and pension records for our Confederate Veterans when researching genealogy or providing documentation for SCV membership. Additional content is continually being added to Footnote and many photos from the War Between the States have been posted.
Footnote.com is working in conjunction with the Virginia Division Sons of Confederate Veterans to offer a 30% donation toward the Oakwood Restoration Fund for each new membership they receive through the link from our Web site (you must click on the Footnote.com button below which has the affiliate coding identifying the Virgnia Division in order for Oakwood to receive the donation. If you go directly to Footnote.com and sign up there, the donation will not be sent to Oakwood).
NOTE: The donation only applies to new subscriptions to Footnote and therefore current Footnote members that use the automatic renewal option will not receive the 30% donation to Oakwood. Current Footnote SCV members would need to let their subscription expire and then sign up again using the link from the Division Web site in order to qualify for the 30% donation to the Oakwood Restoration Fund. Listed below is information from the Footnote Web site specifically for SCV members who wish to sign-up for a subscription to Footnote.
