The acquisition by Ancestry.com of iArchives and its branded website, Footnote.com is completed. See:
In a statement e-mailed by Footnote.com ( which I was not able to find on their website) they said: ".....The plan is to continue to run Footnote.com the way we have always run Footnote.com - continuing to do what we believe is best for our customers, our business and our brand." They signed the message Footnote.com--a subsidiary of Ancestry.com
I have no affiliation with either Ancestry.com or Footnote.com and this is being reported for genealogical interest only.
