Preserving the Pensions on Webinar Wednesday

You didn’t miss it, did you?

 

Today was our debut on the Legacy Family Tree Webinar series, and we were incredibly proud to have Rebecca Koford, CG, present on “The War of 1812 Records – Preserving the Pensions.”

If you did miss it, not to worry! You can watch the recording on familytreewebinars.com for free! The session was described as…

War of 1812 - Battle of New Orleans“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).”

But that’s not all!
