The Indiana Genealogical Society thanks the Elkhart County Genealogical Society in Elkhart, Indiana for their $100 donation to our War of 1812 $10,000 Matching Challenge. Coupled with IGS' match, their donation means 400 more pages of pension files will be digitized!
In this challenge - which is in support of the Federation of Genealogical Societies' 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 before June 30, 2011, up to the first $10,000. Thanks to the generosity of so many, we are over 40% to our match goal!
Any amount you can give will help - even $5 will digitize 10 pages. Donate online, or send your check (made payable to Indiana Genealogical Society, with "War of 1812" in the memo line) to:
