Become acquainted with CGSI officers, directors and other fellow members at our Social mixer on Thursday evening to set the tone for two days of learning. Whether this is your first visit or your fourteenth, this will be a special event with presentations focused on Czech and Slovak research and archival record acquisition made available within a block of the Family History Library.

Please register early as space is limited to the first 150! See you there.
