We are very excited to announce that our database, General Society of the War of 1812 Membership Applications, 1854-1979, is now available to NEHGS guest members, free of cost.
This database includes all applications and supplemental applications to the General Society of the War of 1812 starting from their formal founding in 1854. Material is not included for individuals listed in the applications who were born after January 1, 1979. This database is searchable for given names and surnames, and includes records for provided births, baptisms, marriages, deaths and burials listed for persons in the line of eligibility for membership on the application forms. This database adds more than 170,000 records to search.
This database was created through a partnership of the General Society of the War of 1812 and AmericanAncestors. We thank the employees and volunteers of both organizations for their amazing work to make this information available online.
Through the years, the General Society of the War of 1812 has established a large network of War of 1812 descendants all over the United States. For more information about this society, you can see the General Society of the War of 1812 web page.
