I am helping with the administration of this project, so I can perhaps explain a little
more about its aims. Moorfields currently has a research project to investigate the
possible hereditary nature of a particular form of glaucoma. In order to do this, they
need to trace the descendants of one extended family. The identification of living
descendants, some of whom may also have this condition, will assist them in extending
their knowledge of the genetic nature of the disease. They do the medecine and they have
asked if we will do the genealogy.
So far, we have been delighted with the response from our ad in both the September issue
of the Gen Mag and this list.
