Preserve the Pensions
 
Multiply your donation to digitize the pensions and papers from the War of 1812. These historical documents contain critical clues and information for early ancestors. Many of these papers are now close to 200 years old and are deteriorating due to handling and age. As these documents are digitized, they will be made available to researchers at no cost on Fold3.
 
If you donate through HCGS, we will match dollar for dollar up to a limit of $1812. We will then forward the matched donations to Ancestry.com which has also agreed to match dollar for dollar all contributions to this project. This means that your contribution will have four times the impact! Donate todayFor more information on this initiative or to check the latest status of this project, visit the Preserve the Pensions website.
