The Federation of Genealogical Societies (FGS), The National Archives, Ancestry.com and Fold3.com are partners in a huge effort: to preserve and digitize 7.2 million pages of War of 1812 Pension Records and make them available for free online. As of today over 850,000 images have been digitized by volunteers but the effort needs your help!
Ancestry.com has generously stepped up and agreed to cover costs to digitize HALF of the War of 1812 pension records. So every dollar donated will actually go twice as far!
I was proud to see many Indiana Societies, Organizations and family researchers on the list of contributors! So proud of my Hoosier state!
Please consider donating to this tremendous effort. Your dollar matters.
