Death Record Medical Terminology and Epidemics  (Education)
10:00 am to 12:00 pm
On Zoom - Preregistration required
 
Deciphering the cause of death and those funny numeric codes on death certificates can lead to a better understanding of your ancestor's death.

We've heard of the Smallpox and Spanish flu epidemics, but there are others we should be aware of when researching.
