we have a much-repeated family legend that one of my male ancestors "did time" at Sing- Sing.
Unfortunately, I have no idea who he was, when he was there, or how this transpired, since we´re from England...
I know that the prison offers searches for a fee, but since I have literally no information to start from, this does not seem to be an option.
I do have a few possible candidates in mind, though, so I wonder whether there are any sites than can be browsed, ideally for free?
As I live in Germany I have no possibility of visiting institutions in person.
Any ideas will be greatly appreciated!
