The big brown dog climbed up on the roof just after dawn, sniffed the salty air above San Quentin Village and growled. There were strangers everywhere, strangers with walkie-talkies and microphones, strangers with notebooks, strangers preparing to go on camera live. And all of a sudden, the strangers were looking straight at him. "Get that picture!"

The small residential community of clapboard houses and condominiums flanks a narrow street that dead-ends right at the swinging iron gates of San Quentin Prison. Most residents of San Quentin Village don't mind living in the shadow of the prison because it is one of the few spots left in the Bay Area with waterfront property at affordable prices. Security at the prison is excellent, residents say, and they rarely worry about having 5,000 assorted rapists, murderers and burglars as neighbors.

Question: I know from census records that one of my ancestors was a convict at San Quentin. No one wants to talk to me about him or his background, but I want to trace the line back further. Can you tell me what information is available from prison records and how to obtain it? Answer: San Quentin was established in 1852, so you have a good chance to locate its records. Write to California State Prison at San Quentin, San Quentin, CA. 94964 and to California Department of Corrections, 630 K St.
