If they are in Jefferson County Illinois, the answer is no. I am aware of an insanity case on one of my ancesters in Jefferson County Courthouse in 1886, and I have been told Adoption, Insanity, etc. are closed records, even now. I would need a court order to open the records. Guardianship papers are available in the old records in the basement.
