PRISON RECORDS SEARCH
I thought I had posted this, so I'll just do it again. Another source to think about research is prison records in the state your ancestor's lived or any state you think they may have visited. We have to remember black people were accused of many things, jailed and did time for offences they did not commit. Prison records can hold some information we wouldn't know existed in any other document. Maybe even a picture. I am going to see what I can find about my deceased member's and I'm not going to let family know I'm doing it. I'd hate to have someone get upset about a past prison record.
