I received my husband's grandfather's records from Florida State Hospital. They provided his admission dates, discharge dates, guardian information, diagnosis information and cause of death. He was in and out from January 1930 through June 1942. Beyond the most recent 7 years, they only keep old admission ledgers and Master Resident Index Cards. So, you will not get in deep level of detail. It was well worth our time to receive the information. Remember, you will have to provide a chain of birth and death certificates to prove you are the next of kin plus other documentation. Just contact Medical Records for details. Hope this helps you.
