In Reply to: First Deaf School in Illinois by Terri Parris of 327

My paternal G-grandparents were deaf mutes. Both of them went to the Illinois Institute for the Education of the Deaf and Dumb in 1880. I am in the process of trying to get records about them from the school. I have had some luck with Gallaudet University Archivists giving me good information about deaf resources. There are school newspapers and magazines from the 1800's to find ancestors in.
