RE: [political-graveyard] Re: Cause of death
- I have began an Obit WIKI at my job at a local library. I enter the obits I find in my city and I always list the cause of death unless it is a suicide. Our database is from 1908 to present and I will have job security forever just entering them all. LOL I have several databases I use, plus all the printed and filed obits we have from all those years that I continue to add to as well. I try to be a sensitive as I can because I know that if people read them, they do not want gore. I also have several pages of medical terms for our Genealogy Collection. I will check and see what this means if it says. Have a blessed Day, Judy

Word #2 & #3 are Rectal Fistula. Can't figure out the first word. Looks like it might be venio.
As an aside, while I was searching google for medical terms, and ad for a local medical clinic popped up.
Big Brother Google is watching.
