The informative introductory chapters detailing 'Investigation, Diagnosis, and Treatment of Disease' and 'Finding a Cause of Death' are followed by 24 bite size chapters detailing the common causes of death our ancestors succumbed to in both recent times and centuries past.
From cholera to smallpox, accidents to mental illness and scurvy to starvation, this book is extremely accessible and engaging.
Dipping into chapters in any order makes reading about the causes of ones ancestor's death very straightforward.
With frequent references to a variety of resources throughout the book, each chapter also provides clear and helpful guidance regarding further research on the subject matter.
The book concludes with further information about specific places to visit which may have an association with the death of ancestors.
which I had it recommended to me plus there are also more very good History books. Well worth a read.

Well researched and interesting.
As a medical person myself, I still find myself sometimes confused by the way the cause of death was entered on a death certificate.
Gives a great insight to how our ancestors were treated for illness, and does so in a very easy to understand way. An excellent and highly recommended book.Published 21 months ago by Roy Mathieson
