    National Archives and Footnote launce Project to Digitize Historic Documents (Press Release)

      I recently discovered this NARA Press Release, published March 5, 2014:

      National Archives and Footnote Launch Project to Digitize Historic Document

      In the Release it says "By February 6, the digitized materials will also be available at no charge in National Archives research rooms in Washington D.C. and regional facilities across the country. After an interval of five years, all images digitized through this agreement will be available at no charge through the National Archives web site."


      I'm intrigued by the statement in bold. If this statement is to be believed, than next February 2019, we should be able to access these records via the archives.gov website. Right?  Can anyone provide further insight to this scenario?
