CW-Name
I can find no mention of any the soldier you wrote about who served with a New York unit during the Civil War.
You can check for permutations of his name at:
http://www.itd.nps.gov/cwss/

Once you have a name and unit I can give you what information I have.

To find a soldier if you know the name and a rough geographical area:
You can find out what soldiers may have been the one you are looking for by:
1 – going to The National Parks Service’s Civil War Soldiers and Sailors web site at:
http://www.itd.nps.gov/cwss/soldiers.cfm
And entering the name.
This site will tell you what unit each man was in.

2 – In another window open The Communities of New York and the Civil War, available online at:
http://dmna.ny.gov/historic/reghist/civil/dornbusch/dornbuschIndex.htm
Choose the county you think the person was from.
This site will tell you what units were raised in this county.

3 – Compare the two lists, the soldiers and the units raised in the county. If there is a match that could very well be the soldier you are looking for.
We have rosters for every regiment online at:

Photographs can be reproduced as either a photocopy or as an actual photograph. If a photocopy is wanted the cost is 20 cents plus postage (minimum charge of $3.00). We can also scan a photograph onto a CD and mail. The charge for this is $15 per scan.

Scanning and electronic delivery can also be accommodated. Prices vary for this service.

I have added them to our catalog.
You can see them by searching our online catalog.

In the Keyword box type ZZZZZ.
Once you expand the record by clicking the PA number on the result page, you will see our catalog record for that image.
Most of the photographs have been scanned are available online through the catalog. If they are available, when you open up a record by, there will be a box to the far right (you may have to scroll depending on your monitor) with the box “Image” with links in this box to the digital version of the image.

Electronic Donations

These are interesting images.

However if we are to add these to our collection we need better quality images.
You can see our preferences here:
http://dmna.state.ny.us/historic/histpocsDonations.html

We do ask that all electronic submissions be either a high-quality, color scan (of at least 600 dpi) saved as a TIF, or a very good quality photographic reproduction. We ask for copies of both front and back (although the back can be at a lower resolution JPG).

Sometimes TIFs are too large to email. If they are over 5MB they should be put onto a CD which can be mailed to us at the address below.
As an alternative to sending a CD you could email the file using a third party such as transferbigfiles.com. If you do this, please let me know so that I will look for the email.

We apologize for these requirements; however, we are attempting to ensure that the images donated to us will last for the next 150 years.
