Although a table of descent is a mandatory primary source for studying medical persons, but most of those who practiced medicine were not but of step families. Because members of step families are not usually recorded accurately, preceeding studies did not put much emphasis on them. But as more researchers study biography and the number of studies done on historical figures are increasing tremendously, its value as a source has increased as well. In order to research a person, obtaining background information is a priority, which includes to what family they belong to, to what specific branch of the family they belong to, etc. Whether or not the person has ever worked with a public institution is important as well.
