It is Easter weekend. Hopefully most of you will be spending some time with friends and family for the holiday....sharing meals, hunting for eggs, attending church services, and picking through your basket left by the big bunny.
But if things get a little dull, pull out your laptop, tablet or smart phone and take a look at what is free to view on Fold3 at www.fold3.com Until April 30th, free access to the Civil War databases will be available to the public. This is usually available only to paid subscribers.
This site provides images of Civil War Widow's Pension index cards. Many Civil War photos are available to browse. Registers of Enlistments and Civil War maps are also available. Confederate casualty reports and amnesty papers are indexed.
Take a look at what is FREE until the end of the month. Have fun, and Happy Easter.
