Chandler Eavenson
All of us who work in the Archives were saddened by learning of the death of Chandler Eavenson on June 15, 2011.

Chandler was a devoted volunteer in this project and has put many thousands of records online to help others with their own research.

Chandler was particulary generous in sharing with Elbert & Hart Counties in the Georgia USGenWeb Archives Project as well as a few other counties such as Franklin, Fulton and Wilkes. He was not only generous in transcribing and sharing so many genealogy records, but he was also extremely helpful to other researchers on the message boards and mailing lists.

His genealogy work will live on and help others for years to come.

Chandler will be missed by this project!

His obituary, while brief, is online at along with a guestbook until July 15, 2011.

"Chandler and I were very distant relatives...common ancestors many generations back but we bacame very good friends exchanging e-mails and, every once in a while, he would ask me to visit the DAR Library here in the Washington, DC area to find an item he needed. He did share with me a few interesting items from his life. Grew up in DeKalb County, Georgia. Went to work for the FBI as a file clerk during WWII (he was a teenager), a stint in the military, law degree, back to the FBI, then head of security for Rich's Department Stores in Atlanta. Retired to genealogy.
He really did know how to conduct genealogical research. I'm going to miss learning from him."....Barron Bradford
