South Dakota Department of Corrections,
Thank you for responding. I am not surprised that you do not have any responsive records to my records request. Even so, I thought I would check to see if you had any records, since specifics of FamilySearch's prison indexing program in the U.S. are murky at best. With that being said, thanks again for looking through your records.

Best regards,
Burkely Hermann
