Searching for Records of Institutionalized Ancestors at the Wisconsin Historical Society

The Wisconsin Historical Society holds records of state and local government institutions that housed or cared for citizens of Wisconsin, including prisons, mental hospitals, poor houses, orphanages and schools. Archivist Lee Grady will talk about examples of these records and how genealogists use them to research their family histories.
