Family Histories

Introduction

The following Family Histories are rich in information about the culture and social history of our ancestors from the Czech and Slovak lands as well as their stories of emigrating to the United States or other countries. And, of course, they contain the genealogical information for these families. Many of these genealogies have not been posted elsewhere on the internet, so this is a unique location to further your genealogical research.

If you are in the process of writing your own family story, you will find that every book in this library has a different format and unique stories to tell. We hope it will give you additional ideas to create your own story.

If you have a Family History you wish to share in this library, please contact JMartinek@cgsi.org. We’d love to have it included in this picture of our past.

Please note that we diligently attempt to receive permission from the author or their family prior to posting these books and we treat them as copyrighted information. We ask that you treat them similarly and make note of the source of any information you use in your own personal work. Thank you!
