Good morning from Brooklyn New York,
Family lore has it that prior to WWI my grandfather did a short
stint in prison.
He was working for the Post Office and got caught stealing stamps.
Would anyoine have any idea where I might be able to locate these
Assuming that your grandfather also lived in Brooklyn,and since this
was a crime against the federal government, his records should be
in NARA at the Northeast Region, New York City office at Varick
Street; email newyork.archives@xxxxxxxx, 1-866-840-1752 or
212-401-1620. Brooklyn is in the Eastern District of New York
I also found a free on-line site:
Check that out.
Well, that website appears to be another "pay to see the results"
site. I didn't see anything free. It appears to be a Canadian
commercial venture, not a government site. No way to know if it
actually provides useful information until you pay and register.
