The (US) National Archives (NARA) has had a partnership for digitization
projects with public, private, non-profit, educational an government
institutions for a number of years. NARA has had such a partnership with
Ancestry.com since 2008 and with its sister company, Fold 3.com since 2007.
It is obvious >from the statistics that many people use this service. For
example in June 2015, NARA received 8.8 million views on Ancestry.com and
2.5 million on Fold3.com.

NARA is renewing their partnership agreement with both Ancestry.com and
Fold3.com and welcomes public feedback. The agreement is available for
