IGS Thanks Eastman's Dinner Group For War of 1812 Donation

The Indiana Genealogical Society thanks Bunny Heroman of Baton Rouge, LA and the rest of Dick Eastman's EOGN dinner group for their donation to our War of 1812 $10,000 Matching Grant Challenge! The group met for dinner at the Federation of Genealogical Societies' conference this weekend in Knoxville, Tennessee.

In this challenge - which goes to support the effort to digitize the War of 1812 pension files at the National Archives and make them available online for free - the Indiana Genealogical Society will MATCH any donation made, up to the first $10,000. ANY amount you can give will help - even $5 will digitize 10 pages. Plus, thanks to the matching grant challenge, your donation amount is automatically doubled.

More donations are welcome - donate online, or send your check (made payable to Indiana Genealogical Society) to:

Indiana Genealogical Society
P.O. Box 10507
Fort Wayne, IN 46852-0507
