War of 1812 Matching Funds Challenge
Whether or not your ancestors served in the War of 1812, you may be interested in the project spearheaded by the Federation of Genealogical Societies to Preserve the Pensions and bounty land records from that war. Even better than being preserved, the records will be digitized, searchable, and made available online free of charge.......http://www.stumbleupon.com/su/6hupuF/www.fgsconferenceblog.org/2011/02/war-of-1812-matching-funds-challenge.html
