Genealogical research may hold the answers to questions you have about your family medical history. Join us for this Zoom webinar about Genograms to find out more.

Many health conditions tend to run in families. This reoccurrence is thought to be due to a combination of genetics, the environment, and personal lifestyle. A genogram is a detailed “family medical history pedigree” which can help track these diseases through multiple generations. This program will discuss how a genogram is constructed, highlight the types of genealogical records that may contain your ancestor’s vital health information, explore archaic (and sometimes funny) medical terminology from past centuries, and offer insights on how to approach living family members about their medical history.

Dr. Sarah J. Price Rosen has a Bachelor of Science with Honors in Biology and Chemistry from Denison University, a PhD in Molecular Genetics from Marshall University School of Medicine, and attended a two-year clinical fellowship in Clinical Molecular Genetics at Boston University School of Medicine. She has also earned certificates in Genealogical Studies and Investigative Genetic Genealogy. Her company, Cypher Genealogy, LLC, performs traditional historical genealogy as well as genetic genealogy to reconstruct family histories, find birth parents, or resolve probate disputes. Her areas of interest are migration patterns, Jewish genealogy, peerage, investigative genetic genealogy, and Afro-Caribbean research.

This program is sponsored by the Friends of Memorial Hall Library.

This program will be recorded. A link to the recording will be shared with everyone who registers and will be available for 30 days after the program.
