     Click on the link above to go to the complete story.  Only the first 1400 images were released today in conjunction with the National Genealogical Society National Convention in Charleston South Carolina, but more will be added each day.

     The Indiana Genealogy Society is still collecting funds for a matching gift challenge to raise money to digitize the War of 1812 pension files at the National Archives and put them online for FREE access.

Indiana Genealogical Society
From now until June 30, 2011, the Indiana Genealogical Society will MATCH any donation (up to the first $10,000). That means that if you give $10, IGS will give $10; if you give $100, IGS will give $100.
