Ask-the-Expert Online Conference

Question from Just Me: How would one proceed to research breast cancer in a family in generations past? For instance, my mom does not know if her mom or her grandmother had breast cancer. Is there any way I can find out that you know of?
Answers - Terri McHugh Researching the family genealogy, and at times death certificates, may be useful, as the cause of death should be listed.
