Question:  I have confirmed by a pension of my ancestor from the National Archives that he served in the War of 1812.  I live locally in Boston and I am excited to partake in celebrations for the upcoming Bicentennial.  I would also like to know if the Society of the War of 1812 is still active?

 

Answer:  The Society of the War of 1812 in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts is still active.  You will want to contact their President John T. Manning :  JManning@ma1812society.org    They maintain a website with information about joining their organization at www.ma1812society.org

For a female member of your family they may consider membership with the United States Daughters of 1812 - http://www.usdaughters1812.org/
