Typhus and Typhoid fever
Some days I just am unsure if my my ancestor Juergen Heinrich Wilhelm Meyer had typhus or typhoid at the time of his prisoner days at probably a flea invested Metz, France. It's possible he could have had the life threatening infliction at the end of the Franco Prussian war. When I tell this little fact I sound so wishy washy. So if your like me, when refering to this affliction of our ancestors it's good to get it correct rather than mention Thyphus and Thyphoid fever at the same time. So I shall help you and myself with an explanation here....
