note: i have no evidence that i am related to either of these men. it also needs to be noted that for both there is a comment that the chamber of commerce record comes from the national park service and that they have printed all the information they have on each man. search for these giles men and other andersonville prisoners of war from this page on andersonville maintained by the montezuma, georgia chamber of commerce | here |

I am looking for some good "family tree" resources for our ratings and review websites and believe it or not, yours popped up when I searched for "family tree" blogs. After reading your posts, I can see why Google led me to your site. Even though it's not what I am looking for, I'm glad I stopped long enough to read your posts. Just thought you'd like to know….. thanks
