Question: I found that my great-grandfather was in the Massachusetts Census of 1910 in Prison. Specifically he was at the State Prison in Charlestown, Massachusetts. Where was the location of this facility, and where can I find the records.
Answer: The old State Prison is on the site of the current Bunker Hill Community College in Charlestown, Mass. The records can be searched at NEHGS on microfilm for inmates covering 1805-1930.
