    Genealogical Society puts names with graves

    The pages of California history are filled with the stories of notorious outlaws, many of whom ended up right here in Folsom Prison. What if you're related? How would you find out? With good old-fashioned sleuthing that would make Sherlock Holmes sit up and take notice, members of the El Dorado Hills Genealogical Society recently completed a three-year project to bring to life the names behind the prisoner intake numbers on about 636 tombstones at the Folsom Prison Cemetery dating from the 1880s to 1959 when prison policy ended interment on prison grounds.
