455. Ready To Digitize More 1812 Pensions?

   The Indiana Genealogical Society is in the midst of a second matching grant project to advance the digitizing of War of 1812 pensions. IGS passed a motion at their last Board meeting (introduced by yours truly) to take advantage of several fund matching opportunities.
   We (IGS; I am the Corresponding Secretary) are doing the matching grant in honor of Indiana's Bicentennial and in honor of the Indiana soldiers who served in the War of 1812. If the public--you--contributes $1816, IGS will match it with $2,016. Note the two numbers--look familiar?
    Anyway, if you contribute a few bucks, it will be essentially quadrupled and will digitize lots more pages of pension files. So, come on, send in a little of your spare cash to IGS for the project. Go to their website at www.indgensoc.org for details. And, yes, I'm putting my money where my mouth is.
