Thanks to Denise Hovland, a local historian who has discovered La Cañada’s forgotten heroes and heroines — casualties of World War II and Korea. Thanks to Denise, we’ve been bitten by the genealogy bug. The new online databases are outstanding. Many of them are free of charge. Others charge a fee. My friend, Zelda, has traced her roots all the way to the American Revolution. I gave her a friendly phone call to announce my new obsession. Zelda gave me some advice.

Q. My doctor suggested I write a family health history but I don’t really know what that means. Can you explain it? A family health history is a written record of a family's health. The history contains information about a family's medical conditions, lifestyle habits (for example, whether anyone in the family has smoked), and where and how family members grew up. It's like a family tree for health. You can use a family health history to see if you, your children or your grandchildren might face an increased risk of developing serious health problems.

The Alzheimer's Foundation of America has designated Nov. 14 as "National Memory Screening Day." Memory screenings make sense for anyone concerned about memory loss or experiencing warning signs of dementia; whose family and friends have noticed changes in them; or who believe they are at risk due to a family history of Alzheimer's disease or a related illness. The Crescenta-Cañada YMCA and Verdugo Hills Hospital are teaming up to offer free, confidential memory screenings to people in the community.

Q. A female friend of mine just had a heart attack. I thought heart attacks were rare in women. Can you tell me more? A female friend of mine just had a heart attack. I thought heart attacks were rare in women. Can you tell me more? Selma, La Crescenta ? That is a common misconception. Medical research has traditionally been focused on Caucasian men so our knowledge of the frequency of heart disease in other races and in women is not nearly as extensive. Men and women may differ in their experience of heart attack symptoms.
