It’s time for March Madness!

Our friends at BillionGraves have announced their annual March Madness Tournament, and we are excited to join in the fun!

Currently, there are 617 individuals listed on BillionGraves that have an indication that they served in the War of 1812 – but there were many more! As our community heads outside once again to digitally photograph and document headstones around the country, please be on the look out for those with an War of 1812 designation!

From the folks at BillionGraves,

“It can’t be any better than doing your favorite thing – taking pictures of headstones and transcribing them, AND winning prizes!

So take advantage of the rising temperatures to capture some headstone images at your local cemetery or get your transcribing game on. The more you do, the higher up on the bracket you’ll be!”

Can’t get out to enjoy the cemeteries in your area just yet? That’s okay! You can continue to support the War of 1812 Preserve the Pensions effort from the comfort of your living room. Make a donation today!
