    Im looking up family history. My mother went to the Rome State School. She and her brothers were not mentally ill. My grandmother/grandfather left them alone....the state came in and took over. Im trying to find out what kind on person my mother was during her stay in the state school. Is it possible to find this out??? My mother is alive but remembers little. She did work in the office.

    Hi Andy, I just found out my aunt that I never knew I had was at Rome State School in the 1940's until possibly 1990. She died in 1993 @ age 83. I wish I knew what happened to her and what was wrong with her. It makes me sad to think about it. Can I contact you to see if you knew her. Thank you Barb
