Do any of us have a list of the names of illnesses (andtheir
translations) listed as causes of death in the late 19thcentury records in
Poland - specifically the Jagielnice, Czortkov areas? Some ofthe names are
difficult to decipher, so I am hoping that by looking at alist, I will be
able to match them. I know that there were several epidemics(i.e. typhus,
and that word is legible on many records).
