Wyoming County Look - ups

IMPORTANT INFORMATION - PLEASE READ FIRST


Here are lookup guidelines :

  • Volunteers will do limited lookups.
  • Information given will be minimal, for example if it is a cemetery lookup, the information will be the name of the cemetery and the dates on the headstone.
  • Please do not ask for "everybody with X surname" or an entire family group, or for hardcopies to be mailed.
  • Make sure to say what exactly you want looked up[ names, dates, places] and in what source[s]. Many voluteers do lookups for more than one county and are not mind readers!
  • The volunteers have families, jobs, etc. and will do your lookup when they have time.
  • Please remember to thank them!!!

If you would like to volunteer to do lookups or you have other Wyoming County resources, please contact Betty Thomas -

I live 40 miles from Andersonville Civil War Prison in Macon County Georgia doing Volunteer lookups on the onsite database as well as on a CD that I purchased. To speed things up their records are also online at..... http;//www.corinthian.net/mccc/plookup.htm
Just enter the name you are looking for and search. If you have records showing your ancester was there, and hes not listed, I can check further as some mispellings happened during record keeping and I can check by alphabet on my CD. I also will take pics of graves found for a small fee. I go about twice a month. The records are very extensive as there were 13000 who died there and only 460 buried there as unknown.
