Czechoslovak Genealogical Society International

Since I serve on the Board of Directors for the Czechoslovak Genealogical Society International, I would like to take a minute to give a plug for this group here on my Blog. If you have ancestry in the Czechoslovak region as it was in 1918, including families of Czech, Bohemian, Moravian, Slovak, German, Hungarian, Jewish, Rusyn, and Silesian origin, why not consider joining? The society strives to promote genealogical research and cultural interest. There are over 3,000 current CGSI members. New CGSI members receive a welcome packet of research information including: Information on how to locate living relatives in the Czech and Slovak Republics; Procedures to obtain Birth, Marriage or Death Certificates before 1900 and after the year 1900; Listings in the United States and Canada of organizations that have historical records. Members also receive the Nase Rodina quarterly newsletter which promotes genealogy of the ethnic groups that comprise Czechoslovakia as it was formed in 1918, and Rocenka society journal comprised of articles of lasting value, independently selected and not duplicated from the quarterly newsletter (Nase Rodina), along with research assistance from society members and much more! All this for just $25.00 per year for an individual membership; $30.00 family or $45.00 sponsor. A membership form is available on the CGSI web site:
