Subject: [WIDODGE] Andersonville Civil War POW site
Date: Fri, 9 Aug 2002 22:05:41 -0700
Hello veterans and newbies of the rootsweb.
There are some really great folks who are willing to help just for the asking. I, myself do Volunteer research at Andersonville Civil War Prison in Andersonville Georgia. There are Any research I do is absolutely at NO cost and I am willing to do what I can. There are 629 prisoners on record from the state of Wisconsin and almost 300 who died here, I thought I would send my offer. I feel the need to say I am not in anyway trying to focus on the horrors of Andersonville compared to any POW camp in the north ..( i.e.Elmira ) or any others and do not wish to stir up arguments on this site. My focus is dedicated to ALL of those held prisoner during this war , on both sides as well as all Americans who gave their freedoms for those that we enjoy today.. I just happen to be near Andersonville so this is where I do my work. I will also do lookups for any solder from any state .
Here are my sources of research.
There are 2 online databases to do lookups.....One by name...one by
Company and Regiment. I also 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 which helps me find prisoner records 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 would like to let you know of another service I offer
which is to take photos of graves for a small fee. Please do not consider
this spam as my research offer is FREE for the asking and will be posted on
this county site only once.
If there is anything I can do in helping your research at Andersonville,
please just ask.
