Question:

My ancestor Charles L. Pease died in Boston in 1880 at the Boston Consumptive Home according to his death record.  Can you tell me if NEHGS has any records for this institution or where the records might be?

 

Answer:

The Boston Consumptive Home may be in fact the Dr. Cullis Consumptive Home which was operating in the late 19th century in Boston.  This organization only took uncurable patients, and according to one study kept no records. www.homeoint.org/books3/hospital/registered.htm

 

If this in fact was a Boston institution you may wish to contact the Boston City Archives, as they have records for many city managed facilities, schools, etc.  You can reach them via email: Archives@cityofboston.gov, or by phone 617-635-1195.
