War of 1812 *


The USGenWeb Archives is embarking on the USGenWeb Archives Pension Project. This project will endeavor to provide actual transcriptions of Pension related materials for all Wars prior to 1900. Transcripts, extracts and abstracts will be accepted and files will be placed in the USGenWeb Archives directory of the State and County of principal residence of the Pensioner.  

Volunteers Needed! We are looking for volunteers who will coordinate each state's War of 1812 Pension records. If you would like to volunteer, please email Donna Bluemink
