'Insanity and Unsound Mind'
Names beginning with Q

Does your family history have someone who 'vanished'? If you cannot find a death certificate, or if children were raised by someone other than a parent, check mental asylum records. Reasons for admission include epilepsy, head injury, alcoholism, congenital defects, depression (including post-natal depression), etc. Many patients (adults and children) spent only days or weeks in an asylum before being discharged, and descendants would be unaware of that. I've spent many years creating indexes to make the information more accessible.

Mental asylums created documents whose usefulness varies. Other agencies and government departments created different types of records that are often even more useful. The records vary in content, but some give reasons for admission, and some have superb details about patients' relatives.

Before you check the list of names, please read this explanation carefully:
