The Blogging from A to Z Challenge is to post everyday (except Sunday) in the month of April 2016 starting with the letter A and going all the way to Z. The theme I chose is Genealogy Tips. At the end I will give a related post from my blog Genealogy: Beyond the BMD.
NOTE: My comments somehow got turned off yesterday... it is working again and I always value and enjoy your comments. Thank you.
M is for Medical
I wrote a post in my regular blog about how important it is to know your medical history. A new-found cousin has a disease that the doctor's did not want to diagnose for sure because it is hereditary and they thought there was no history of it in the family. That was before she found my post! Now her and her family know for sure and can proceed with proper treatment and care.
Where I was born
One of my favourite books is called "Domina" by Barbara Wood. It is about a young woman who struggles to become a doctor in Victorian London. I've read it a few times and soon I'll forget enough that I can read it again.
Do you know your medical history?
