Medical Terms through the Ages

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.
