We all have that term we write down from the death certificate and think dear heavens what is this..well mine was Brain fever and it was written on the death certificate. I was thinking maybe it could be they died of a really high fever. No, that was not it. It meant something else. Brain fever is actually – see meningitis, typhus.
Often times we google these terms and come up with many different sites and think should we use this one or that one. Well so far I have used Genealogy Quest with all the people I have terms for and it is more then just terms to just look up they are actually interesting to read.
