IGS Thanks Oakland County (Michigan) Genealogical Society for War of 1812 Donation

The Indiana Genealogical Society thanks the Oakland County Genealogical Society in Birmingham, Michigan for their $300 donation to our War of 1812 $10,000+ Matching Challenge. Coupled with IGS' match and Ancestry.com's match, their generous donation means that 2,400 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 through August 31, 2011. There are less than 24 hours left to make a donation that will be matched.

Because Ancestry.com is matching what IGS contributes to FGS, your money will actually be QUADRUPLED by the time it reaches FGS - a $25 donation to IGS will end up as $100 when received by FGS. Any amount you can give will help - even a $5 donation means 40 more pages will be digitized.

To contribute before midnight Eastern tonight, please donate online
