Society Surprise Sunday We Have Exceeded Our Goal TWICE!!

... posted by Sandra Gardner Benward - Thank You!!

Root Cellar Sacramento Genealogical Society has challenged their members to raise funds for the "Preserve the Pensions War 0f 1812". This effort is being spearheaded by the Federation of Genealogical Societies (FGS). They are doing the actual digitizing of the Pension Records - all with a mass appeal for support and funds to the genealogical community. The community has listened and funds are being raised all over the county.

In early April, we told our members that Root Cellar SGS would match any funds received for this project up to $300.

YOU HAVE MET THAT GOAL AND EXCEEDED IT.............

So Root Cellar SGS board extended their offer to their members to match funds received up to $500

YOU HAVE MET THAT GOAL AND EXCEEDED IT TOO!!

WOW, what next??? Root Cellar SGS will continue collecting funds through their June General Meeting. After all, what ever funds we match and additional funds raised will ALL be matched again by Ancestry.com. So this can only be a WIN-WIN effort.

This is a genealogical community effort.......  if you would like to contribute please feel free to send us your donation (please label it 1812). Make your check out to Root Cellar SGS, and mail it to same, P.O.Box 265, Citrus Heights, CA 95611..... and Thank You.  


Special Thank You to Rick Hanson for creating our graphic and continuing to update it when necessary.
