Someone snapped a picture of the Ancestry Insider at the 2015 annual conference of the National Genealogical Society. I was investigating the “Preserve the Pensions” money raising campaign. Someone caught me reading their brochure:
The Federal of Genealogical Societies is raising money from genealogists like you and me to have pension applications from the War of 1812 digitized and published for free access online.
It’s a worthy cause. Check it out at http://www.preservethepensions.org.
