SCOTT COUNTY MN. LOOKUPS
Volunteers to help in your research

 

Please remember, these are all "volunteers" and are doing this on their own time. Do not abuse their services, and follow their guidelines for requests.

If you can volunteer to look up information for others, please send me an e-mail at schumanC@comcast.net.  You may possibly benefit from this as much as the researcher you're helping!

I am willing to do lookups in my book: "Saint Wenceslaus Cemetery and Czech National Cemetery Inventory; New Prague, Minnesota". It includes both an alphabetical index and a block index of interred people, as well as maps for the cemeteries which I could send electronically.

"FREE RESEARCH"
Andersonville Civil War Prison Records, Andersonville Georgia.


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. Any research I do is absolutely at NO cost and I am willing to do what I can. There are 259  prisoners on record from the state of Minnesota and more than 100  who died here, I thought I would send my offer.  I feel the need to say I am not in any way 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 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. Please visit my website dedicated to those Americans  who were imprisoned and died in captivity while in the service to our country
