“The War of 1812 Records - Preserving the Pensions”
The War of 1812 records contain more than just the Name, Rank, and Serial Number (minimum information required to give in the event of capture) of the veteran. This webinar will focus on the various documents that might be found in the Pension records of The War of 1812 veterans, how they might be used to overcome brick walls in genealogical research, and about the Preserve The Pensions project (www.preservethepensions.org).
