Black Sheep Sunday: Federal Inmate Locator

   I haven't had to trace prison inmate ancestors yet, so I surprised to stumble across the following. The Federal Bureau of Prisons has an "inmate locator" program for inmates released before 1982. Given basic information about the inmate, they will help you locate a family member. I also wonder if they may be able provide information about the confinement of ancestors. I'm not sure. It sounds like an interesting resource.

  1. Interesting. I will have to check this out as we have at least one questionable ancestor I'd like to get more info on. :-)
