Until 2011, I was a volunteer historian for the National Park Service at Andersonville National Historic Site for 13 years.

I have a complete NPS database on Andersonville prisoners as well as modern graves up to 2006. I do free research for the asking. As in all of my findagrave photos, double click on the photo and I have included the known details from the Andersonville record archives. If there is not a record posted, let me know and I will share the Andersonville information available in the Andersonville records.

I have many resources available to me for researching not only Andersonville prisoners that the Andersonville Historic Site does not have access to and I have photographed each of the more than 14000 Federal Civil War graves at Andersonville National Cemetery on disk at my fingertips. You are welcome to use my photos for any purpose including websites or public print, however, they are copyrighted and I would like to have a simple contact email asking for permission to use before doing so.

If you are looking for an ancestor who is buried at Andersonville and you cannot find him listed at FAG... please email me. Findagrave has said accurate historical documentation of a veterans grave is not important. As we all know THOUSANDS of Andersonville dead are buried under headstones with incorrect spellings, however FAG does not allow memorials to be made with these hero's correct names if there is a memorial with the incorrect name on the stone. Memorials MUST BY LAW have the incorrect name if on the stone.

Please feel free to join my facebook group which is based on Descendants of Andersonville prisoners , however anyone with interest in the History of Andersonville of the National Cemetery at Andersonville is welcome to join.
