the main library in New Orleans has the original interdictions - she can get
a copy of that if she gives them the info we transcribed. The interdiction
page that I got for my aunt had more information than the records we
transcribed for example - she was having frequent seizures and could no
longer be cared for at home - said she was clean and i don't remember what
else but i think is certainly is worth it to either go to the library and
find it or have the library send it. The cost used to be about $2.00 to
send for it. Much cheaper than parking and making your own copies (which
you pay for)

Does anyone have any background information on the City Insane Asylum? I
was contacted by Pat (copying her on this email) who discovered her
Kate Pendergast in the records of the Next of Kin of Patients in the Insane
Asylum that we transcribed for the Louisiana Division. See
(http://www.nutrias.org/~nopl/inv/next%20of%20kin.htm) . We would like to
find out if any further records exist.
I suggested to Pat to try to find out where the patients in the asylum came
from. I suspect that many came from Charity Hospital. If so, there would
an admission record for Kate somewhere on the microfilm for the 1877
admissions, assuming she was not in the asylum or the hospital for long.
Does anyone have any additional info about the city insane asylum from the
