I am trying to find out if my biological grandmother died of tuberculosis in the Maryland Tuberculosis Sanitarium. Her name Velma Deck and we think she sided there in 1945. If anyone can direct me to where I could find information about her, I would really appreciate it.
Thank you so much for your help!
- Well, I see that the institution is still active, though under a new name, Victor Cullen Center, and also is a Juvenal detention center now.
- Here are your options:
- Contact the center directly and see if they have the records or can point you in the right direction. http://www.djs.maryland.gov/Pages/facilities/Victor-Cullen-Center.aspx
- Contact/visit the Maryland State Archives to see if they have the sanitarium's records and what you're looking for. http://msa.maryland.gov/
- Contact the local historical society to see if they hold any records for the institution. https://frederickhistory.org/
