Jail

Did your ancestor serve time in jail? It did not matter if the time was short or long. Depending on the type of incarceration and the severity of the offense you be able of find information. The local police force or county records would be the place to check. Criminals have very good paper trails even though they are not the best of trails.

Thank you for sharing this information. I am currently searching for more information about my great-grandfather who died in Richmond City Prison. I am thinking that I will travel to Richmond and see what kind of paper trail may be left behind.
