Looking for answers

Hi there, I'm not sure if you can be of any help to me but am going through some family history stories and it was written that my great grandfather died in a psychiatric hospital in Franeker in 1888. Family members have told us that the hospital is still there. I realize this is many many years ago but would be very grateful for any information. If there is someone else that may be of some help to me would you please be kind enough to email through their address and I could get in touch with them.

Kindest Regards Jeanette Kiely from New Zealand.

Possibly one of these psychiatric hospitals (the three locations in Franeker are in fact next to each other):

If you are still looking for this information - our parents live in Franeker and I can ask them.

I will be in Franeker in July and can search for you. Send me a private message if you still need more information.

Hi there, thanks for your reply. I think it would be an idea for me to come over and do some searching of my own but thank you for being kind enough to offer your help, cheers Jeanette.

Franeker seems to be a nice place (although I have never been there). Probably still quite protected from mass tourism. It is about 2.5 to 3 hours from Amsterdam.

Did you try searching if http://genlias.nl/ has any information on him?
