FYI: War of 1812 Heritage Society

It’s never been a better time to apply for the War of 1812 Heritage Society. You, and anyone you know, can qualify for this Society by proving to genealogical standards of evidence that you have an ancestor who fought to preserve the freedom of Canada during the War of 1812.  If your ancestor was a member of any branch of the British Military during the War of 1812, that qualifies. They may be a British Soldier based in (what is now) Canada during the war years, a member of a Canadian militia unit that saw action during the war, a member of the Royal Navy, or a native who saw action on the British side during the war. 

Applications received and approved in 2012 will be dated as issued during the first year of the War of 1812 bicentennial anniversary, but rest assured that the War of 1812 Heritage Society will remain open in the years to come and certificates will be issued on an ongoing basis.

Please see the OGS website for the application form.
