I recently found out that an ancestor spent time in the Worcester County House of Correction in Massachusetts in the 1902/1903 time period.  I was told when I called that I can't get a copy of the record because the prisoner in question isn't alive to sign a release.  Does anyone know if it's possible to get such records that are over 100 years old?  Thanks.....
