tracy, you shouldn't need to go north. call your local library, LDS church, or college. check if they offer anything on Genealogy. then rent the microfilm to view. they even have a machine that can photo copy the micro film. the census reports are not in the best of shape but certainly worth viewing. i go to a LDS church (i'm not a member) for genealogy. i rent the census needed for $3.25 postage. the library charges $20.00. by the way, i viewed more of the 1900 census tonight. there are a lot of patients listed.
Chippewa County Chronic Insane Asylum in Eagle Point Township.
Wisconsin Home for the Feeble Minded in LaFayette Township.
i can't believe the amount of patients, the ages, and several with the same last name. it would be worth you time to check it out. you never know what you may find. good luck!!!
