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.

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:

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