Give to the Future by Preserving the War of 1812 Pensions at Jamboree

Giving to the Future by Preserving the Past

It's more than just the Jamboree 2016 conference theme.. it is a call to arms.

As family historians and genealogists, we are always looking - for sources, images and documents that help to tell the story of our ancestors.

Please join the Federation of Genealogical Societies, Ancestry.com, FamilySearch, the Southern California Genealogical Society and Genealogy Jamboree by supporting the ongoing effort to preserve the fragile and precious 7.2 million images contained within the over 150,000 War of 1812 pension files.

Your donation will help to not only digitally preserve the images, but it will also help make them freely accessible to all for future generations, ensuring that the sacrifices of our brave forefathers will never be forgotten.

You can donate by clicking the link above, or by visiting the War of 1812 Donation Box at the Registration Kiosk during Jamboree.

With our sincere gratitude for your support,

The Board of Directors & The Jamboree 2016 Committee
