Genealogy and Medical History

Researching your family’s medical history is a very important focus when doing genealogy research. It will inform you of what diseases and medical conditions that you may have a predisposition for, so that you can change your lifestyle to avoid the condition or at least lessen the severity of it. It also makes you aware of certain symptoms to watch for that you otherwise wouldn’t pay attention to.
There is a tool just for this purpose, called the Family Health History Tool at It Runs In My Family. With this tool you can create your family health history and keep it online and print off and take with you when you see your doctor.
Even if you aren’t researching your genealogy, everybody should take the time to create a medical history report, it will make it easier for medical practitioners to know what runs in your family and may even save your life!
