Please send me an email with any unlisted words or phrases that you have come across. They will be added to the "undefined" page after review. All new terms will eventually be added to the alphabetical lists. Please include the language that the term is from.

I am happy to help transcribe and translate your hard to read Causes of Death. If possible, please include a scan of the record with your email. It is always more helpful to see the handwritten original when trying to figure out the difficult words.
