IGS War of 1812 Match Challenge At 15% of Goal
The Indiana Genealogical Society's match challenge for the digitizing of War of 1812 pension files has now reached 15%. Thanks to all who have contributed so far! This match challenge seeks to raise $1,816 in donations (in honor of 1816, the year of Indiana statehood) - when we reach $1,816, IGS will match that with another $2,016 (in honor of the year of Indiana's bicentennial). Thanks to the participation of other organizations, that $3,832 will end up being $30,656 - enough to digitize some 60,000 pages of documents.
HOW TO DONATE:
Donate online through the IGS website, or mail your check payable to Indiana Genealogical Society (please indicate "War of 1812 donation" in the memo line) to:
