DIGITIZING THE WAR OF 1812 PENSION FILES
You Can Make a Difference!
The War of 1812 Pension Digitization Project website says, “the Pension Records from the War of 1812 are among the most requested documents at the National Archives. Unfortunately, these fragile documents are in urgent need of digitization.
“In support of this monumental task of digitizing 7.2 million pages, Ancestry.com has provided a dollar for dollar matching grant, so every dollar you contribute will make four more pages accessible and free for everyone.” With that in mind, please go to Preserve the Pensions and contribute: http://www.preservethepensions.org/.
