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.  Any research I do is absolutely at NO cost and I am willing to do what I can. There are more than 41718 prisoners on record from  the Union, ( 6680 from Pennsylvania )and quite a few who were held prisoner here as Union regiments from Confederate states. There are also nearly 13000 ( 2261 New York ) marked graves of those who died here.
     I thought I would send my offer as these would lead to a great many descendants who might be looking for them..  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
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 41718 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 also have the continued update database which is dated October 01 2002 . . I visit the prison site every  couple of weeks and have access to the onsite databases as well as the physical files. Please do not consider this spam as my research offer is FREE for the asking . Please email me directly at Frye@gnat.net 
      If there is anything I can do in helping your research at Andersonville, please just ask. Kevin Frye
