Great to be on your discussion board!

I enjoy American History and will find much of this content engaging.

I am also embarking on a potential business idea around content related to 1800's era American military records. For those fellow discussion forum members that do research in this space, I would love to get your feedback -

Do you do searches or research for genealogy, academic requirements, as a hobby, or other purposes?

How often do you access records for search purposes?

If content was relevant and informative, is this the type of thing you would purchase a subscription for?

What have you found to be the best ways to gather information or pursue your hobby?

Thank you!

This site is about History, not Market Research. BTW, this sort of poll isn't likely to produce any useful information on which to make business decisions. We welcome you and your interest in 19th century American Military Records should make you popular with some of our members.

Thank you both. I don't mean to offend, just trying to integrate my passion for history with an idea I've had that might be useful to other that share the same enthusiasm.

I will appreciate many elements of this site.

You do know Fold3 already specialize in making American military records from all eras available online? I'm sure they don't have everything, but if you're serious about this business idea, you'd need to be able to provide something that they don't.

Agreed. Also, I wonder if sites such as Ancestry.com and Familysearch.org also have old military records.

Ancestry .com own Fold3 so they don't really bother to put very many military records on Ancestry - they put them on Fold3 so they can force people to get a Fold3 subscription in addition to their Ancestry subscription. What military records are on Ancestry were probably from before they bought Fold3 and ethically couldn't take it away.

FamilySearch have a number of military records (and they are free), though I'm sure Fold3 have more: https://www.familysearch.org/search/collection/list?fcs=recordType:MILITARY&ec=recordType:MILITARY
