Can I put my anamnesis in a family tree?

Dr. Jeanne Morrison, PhD
Family Practitioner

Yes. In fact, putting your anamnesis in a family tree can actually be a great way to visualize the connections among your family members and the conditions they have had. Doing this may make it easier for you to notice patterns. In addition, if you put your information in a family tree, you can also use the family information to research your ancestry. When you pass the records onto your children, they will get the chance to not only learn about their relatives, but they will also be privy to life-saving information.
