I am looking for information on genetic diseases and syndromes
specifically related to the sub group of mennonite families from Canada
and the U.S. who migrated to Mexico in the 20's and 30's.
Many of these families come back in the summer to work as field help on
local farms and we end up with their medical care.
Our genetics department is looking for information which would aid in the
treatment etc. of these families.  A Medline search has been of little
benefit and I suppose ideally I am looking for someone's PHD theses on
this topic or something similar. ( I'm also looking for the wining
numbers for the next 649 and maybe the chances are just as good.)
Any help would be appreciated. Please reply directly to me as I doubt
there will be much interest to the majority of the readers.
