Many people are studying their family history to find medical information. Among the conditions that are thought to be hereditary and at least partly preventable are depression, diabetes, kidney disease, hypertension, heart disease, and cancer.
I will no longer send text edits as conventional messages. They will contain only the text for the memorial. I have found greetings, closing salutations and editorial asides posted to bios; even "Add to bio:" I leave it to you to ponder which of these indelicacies is the greater. As for me, I have decided.
I found a statement about links that perfectly expresses my own beliefs. I'm posting it with permission: Let's help the next family member or researcher that visits a memorial by adding all the family links that we know. When family members are not linked, it makes the next person do the research all over again. Also, if we have the information, let's use it before it is forgotten. I also believe that family links make this site easier to use. The easier it is to use, the more it will be used and the better it will get.
