Society Saturday - "Preserve the Pensions War of 1812" Project

I suppose you heard Root Cellar SGS (RC) is participating with the Federation of Genealogical Societies (FGS)Ancestry.comfold3, FamilySearch and many other societies and individuals around the country and the world to financially help support the
"Preserve the Pensions War of 1812 "Project

We announced our participation in this project through our blog, and then spoke directly to you about it at our April Meeting. You have embraced it and made your donations. Thank You So Much.


 ........  want to know how we are doing already? 

As you can see  from the graphic below we have ALREADY reached our goal.......
 
$300 in donations from our membership
this will be matched dollar for dollar from Root Cellar SGS organization....
 giving us $600 total donation, but WAIT
with additional matching funds from Ancestry.com
Root Cellar members now will be donating $1200
  
WOW!! I am so impressed and you should be just as impressed with your generosity and support. 

Maybe we should continue to collect and see how much more we can collect. What do you say? We were going to collect through the June Meeting and that is still almost two months. Let's do it!!!

Root Cellar Sacramento Genealogical Society would like to challenge all the societies in Northern California to get involved with the "Preserve the Pensions War of 1812" digitizing project. Let the country know that Northern California cares and wants to support and be a part of this huge effort.
