Info on great grandfather in institution I found my great grandfather on the 1940 census for the LaCrosse County Insane Asylum.His name is Bernt Tweet- or sometimes he goes by Gustav Bernt Tweet. There is little else about him that I can find. I am trying to find out how he got there - why he was institutionalized. Any information you can give me or point me in the right direction, I would greatly appreciate. Thank you. Joan Lawson (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Finding Relative In Insitution
I found my aunt in Wisconsin Colony and Training School State Institution-Mentally Deficient and Epileptic on a census for 1940. She was 7 years old. She was from Racine, Wisconsin. Her name is Dorothy Mae Hamann born August 8, 1932. Her parents were Earl and Theresa Hamann. I am trying to find out information as to her status, when she died and anything about her. I am hoping you can send me in the right direction.

GG-Grandmother in St. Vincent's Insane Assylum from about 1881 to 1900
I found the probate records for a guardianship to be granted to her son. The date was after her husband had died. Are there any records that are able to be accessed about this institution? Thank you for all of your work on this project. This institution was in St. Louis MO
