Descendant Outreach

The AHRC is eager to hear from people who believe they have relatives who may be among those buried here. Our history scholars are particularly interested in gathering stories and artifacts (letters, diaries, photos, etc.) which might shed light on life at the asylum. These documents will be shared only with your express permission.

As we gather information, we are building a database that will be available to researchers and to descendants in the future. If you have questions, please contact Lida Gibson.
