English/Welsh SIG

When: The English/Welsh SIG next meeting is on Saturday February 16, 10-noon at the AFHS library

The topic will be: Hereditary Diseases & Finding Medical Records. An example will track the gene for Huntington’s Disease back five generations through descriptions of its symptoms. The term “Huntington’s” was not used until Generation 3 and even then there was no awareness that the disease was hereditary.

The meeting is open to anyone with an interest in the topic -further examples of hereditary diseases would be welcome.
