Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Family medical history may play a major role in determining genetic predisposition to a particular illness. A freelance writer specializing in health issues, Daus became interested in this topic when she noticed patterns of heart disease and cancer within her own family. Here she offers a step-by-step genealogical guide to tracing the family health tree. Included are numerous resources for fact finding and professional assistance. She also provides a glossary of terms and explanations of common genetic diseases. D.L. Nelson-Anderson and C.V. Waters's Genetic Connections: A Guide to Documenting Your Individual and Family Health History (LJ 7/95) covers similar ground. Suitable for all public libraries.ALeila Fernandez, Steacie Science Lib., York Univ., Toronto
