Notes
  • "The potential value of asylum records for family history research is often underestimated ... people could be placed in an institution for a wide variety of reasons and for maybe only a few days. Asylums were not just for people with mental illnesses, they often were refuges for the old and the destitute. Those people with no one else to care for them or unable to care for themselves often found themselves in institutional care"--Introduction.
