Ask a Genealogist: War of 1812 ancestor discovery

 Permanent link


I have recently confirmed I am a 3rd great grandson of a War of 1812 veteran.  Is there an organization that is specifically concerned with War of 1812 descendants and research?


Reply from David Allen Lambert, NEHGS Chief Genealogist

Congratulations on locating a War of 1812 veteran in your family tree.  I am certain you will find the General Society of the War of 1812 able to suit your needs.  This organization is still active and has been around since 1894.  At that time three societies merged to form the General Society. You can find out more about membership, and download a form online at:
