Civil War Prison, Andersonville Georgia
I do volunteer research at Andersonville Civil War Prison in Andersonville, Georgia at absolutely at no cost. There are 1743 prisoners of war on record from the state of Indiana and about 700 who died here. I also do the research for any prisoners from any state that were here. There are 2 online databases to do lookups.....one by name...and one by company and regiment. I have a copy of the Dorence Atwater Death list which has the names and grave numbers of 12960 graves with only 460 marked as Unknown. This, along with a CD I have which contains 34,000 names of the 45,000 who were imprisoned there, helps me find prisoner records which are difficult to find because of misspellings of the names or alternate names. I visit the prison site every couple of weeks and have access to the onsite databases as well as the physical files. I also take grave photos for a small fee to cover my costs. Email me directly for free lookup at Frye@gnat.net

DAR researchers A helpful group of organized DAR VIS Volunteers monitor the RootsWeb DAR Message Board every day and welcome lookup requests. Include your Revolutionary War-era ancestor's first and last name, spouse's name (if known), dates of birth, death, and state of residence when posting your lookup request. You need not be interested in joining the NSDAR to request a lookup.
Notes: When an old person dies, it's like a library burning.
