I subscribed to the list yesterday..(after reading Eastman) but so far,
little to no activity. In doubt as to the objective..but thought I'd watch
it for a few weeks.
I received your excellent book in the mail this week. Thank you. I worked
out a chart for my senior citizens to keep their family health history. I
used two columns and about 20 lines...one column to list the I.D. number,
the other column to list the codes from the World Health organization...with
some room for exceptions and additional information...i.e. HA..(heart
attack,)1987; CHD 1994, HA fatal 1998, and adding a DD...date of death.
For I.D. numbers, I suggested using Ahnentafel numbers, with the lateral
lines added..i.e. ancestor #8's third child would be 8.3. his 10th child
would be 8.A. Third generation would be 8.A4 etc.
Genealogists will find this simple and accurate. Few people could interpret
this unless into genealogy, know #1, and have access to the WHO code. If my
talk goes well, then I will publish it in the "Lay of the Land", the
quarterly newsletter I edit for my Lay Family Genealogical Society. I always
give credit to my sources.
How changed Genealogy will be in ten years! Take Care, Bettie Lay Rehling
