View Full Version : Causes of Death
05-04-2011, 5:01 PM
Ages ago I found a really good website which translated into layman's terms most of the causes of death that might be found on old death certificates. Then my computer crashed and I lost all my Favourites! :mad5:
I would really like to find the site again but have searched and searched with no luck.
Can anyone help?? :detective:
Was it this one?

This one seems pretty comprehensive and gives source references which makes a refreshing change:
'Rudy's List of Archaic Medical Terms':
P.S. typed too slowly!

There was a similar, and possibly more comprehensive, site by one Dr Paul Smith. It's gone away, but most of it is available on the Wayback Machine at:
If any of the selection letters in its LH panel doesn't work, the page can actually be retrived from the Wayback Machine at URLs such as:
which gets the page for diseases beginning with M. Change m.htm at the end to the letter of your choice.
I didn't go through all the archived pages to find his latest versions.
