Working on Illinois Mental Health Records

My current project (on the big long list) is to try and get the mental health records of Ira Sargent from the Illinois state hospitals in Bartonville and Jacksonville. Ira was sent to Jacksonville in ca. 1906 and then to Jacksonville a few years later.

The records are under permanent seal by Illinois statute and are housed in the Illinois State Archives (I think). I'll keep readers posted on my attempts to locate and obtain these records.
