I'm trying to locate information about my grandmother, who was committed when she had post-partum depression following the birth of my father. She died inside the asylum from complications of a lobotomy circa 1951.
I have: Her name, and her DOB. How do I find out 1) what mental hospitals were in that area in the 1940s/1950s, and 2) how do I go about obtaining information regarding her death? She is not on the SSDI, and I don't really know where to begin. Any help would be appreciated...thank you so much.
