Naming the Forgotten - The Eastern State Hospital Project

Naming the Forgotten, a special project within the KyGenWeb, is working to gather the names of those who lived and died at Eastern State Hospital, formerly the Eastern State Lunatic Asylum, prior to 1956.  It is suspected that the hospital cemetery may hold as many as 10,000 unmarked graves.  The projects goal is to identify those who are buried in the hospital cemetery and the numerous others who died while in the hospital.  Before the registration of deaths in 1911, records pertaining patients are extremely hard to find.  Anyone with information to assist in this endeavor please contact Mary Hatton.
