I am trying to locate my grandfather's whereabouts when he 'went away' for a few years in the 1940s (in New York City). He presumably had tuberculosis and went to a sanitorium but I don't know how to access those records.
However, he was also arrested once for bookmaking and he might have gone to prison and the other story was a coverup.
Any suggestions as to where I should start with either set of records?
