YUBA   COUNTY

PRISON RECORDS - SAN QUENTIN

If you have any records you would like to share, contact Kathy:  yubaroots@gmail.com 


This is a brand new section as of Jan. 2011.  I will add to it as I am able.

 

These files are from the inmate register of prisoners.  Under the name is the number they were assigned. Typed as appears in original record - including spelling errors. 

(Note: There was not a column for Physical Description - it was written across the bottom of the columns.  I added the extra column for ease of transcription.)
