WDYTYA, War of 1812, and a GeneaQuilt

Tonight's episode of Who Do You Think You Are? touches on the War of 1812. The episode follows "Chris O’Donnell’s strong family legacy through an epidemic and war. He travels to St. Louis and Washington D.C to see how deep his roots go and learn of the events that strongly tie his family to American history."

It's a good time to point out that the last Genea-Quilters project was a fundraiser for the Preserve the Pensions project sponsored by the Federation of Genealogical Societies. You can read more about the giveaway on their blog. That quilt will be in the hands of a lucky winner this weekend at #FGS2013.

The Preserve the Pensions Fund is an important effort. You can read more about this on the FGS website. Looking for War of 1812 records? Check out the collection of over 700,000 records on Fold3.
