Family Medical History

The single most important thing to come from genealogy research is a complete family medical history. Even if you don’t care who your ancestors were, this is vital information that everyone should have.

Throughout this blog I will be including any known medical history and cause of death for every ancestor that I can.

Please print the pages or copy the information of your direct line and share it with your doctor and make sure all of your emergency contacts have this information…..it could save your life.

Until I’m able to complete these pages I will leave you with this vital information:

Heart Disease is the #1 killer of my family. Both Sides
Specifically, Coronary Artery Disease.
Smokers seem be the most at risk. These people usually don’t make it past the age of 50 without having heart surgery, and that’s if they actually sought medical attention, which sadly some don’t or can’t.
