Diseases

Whether you are researching your ancestry for fun or to determine a family medical history, death certificates are a useful document to find. But what happens when you cannot decipher the cause of death? Or perhaps you have uncovered some family letters that discuss an ancestor’s recent illness but you do not recognize the name of the disease? These lists were compiled for just these reasons – to help us all to get the most information out of the records we find. Unfortunately, we have no lists as yet that assist with reading the doctor’s handwriting.

This is not intended to be taken as medical advice or to be used for diagnosing ailments at home.
