    BOOK - Death Certificates and Archaic Medical Terms    [an Australian perspective]
    By H. Smith
    Published by Unlock the Past, Australia, 2011
    Printed and bound in Canada by GlobalGenealogy.com Inc., Milton, 2015

    This book is written from an Australian perpective with most information pertaining to Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. Death certificates are an important document in family research, both to 'kill off' our ancestors and to determine their cause of death. This is especially so for people who are interested in establishing their medical genealogy. However at times it seems as though the cause of death is in a foreign language. 'Death Certificates and Archaic Medical Terms' examines the history and evolution of death certificates. When did they start? What is on them? What were the legal requirements? What does it mean when a death is certified? Why aren't all deaths certified? It also gives meanings to a number of archaic terms found on death certificates such as cachexia, breakbone fever, byssinosis, coeliac passion, dipsomania, inanition and Potter's Rot.

GERMANY / GERMAN / GERMANIC

    BOOK - Researching in German Civil and Church Records
    By E. Kopittke
    Published by Unlock the Past, Australia, 2015
    Printed and bound in Canada by GlobalGenealogy.com Inc., Milton, 2015

    Eric Kopittke answers the question 'How can I obtain a birth or marriage certificate from Germany for an immigrant ancestor?' What the new researcher may not realise is that in Germany the system of births, marriage and deaths by civil authorities, and the issue of associated certificates, has some significant differences to the system that the researcher may be used to. Prior to the introduction of civil registration, churches kept registers of baptisms, marriages and burials, and such church records may allow the researcher to follow the family back for several hundred years. This book is a practical guide that, with the aid of many illustrations, will allow the reader to become familiar with the types of information available on German civil certificates of birth, marriage and death and church records of baptism, marriage and burial. The book then explains how to access these records. ISBN 9781925323085     More Information
