What documents do I need to examine my anamnesis?

If your family has not kept any documents, like birth certificates or health records, you can still easily determine your anamnesis by simply discussing it with your family members. However, if your family has kept health records, you should take advantage of them. You can look at birth certificates, marriage records, and other documents to determine your family tree. Then, examine any health records to fill in the medical information for each member of that family tree. By examining these documents, you will have a better understanding of your family tree and your family's medical history.
