Fold3 Library Edition

Fold3™ Library Edition by Ancestry provides convenient access to US military records, including the stories, photos and documents of the men and women who served. It contains millions of records from world-class archives, many of which are exclusively available on Fold3.

Fold3 is invaluable for historians, genealogists, researchers, military enthusiasts, veterans and their families, teachers and battle reenactors.

The Fold3 name comes from a traditional flag folding ceremony in which the third fold is made in honor and remembrance of veterans.
