      Though I do not do genealogical research, I can certainly say that the obituaries are invaluable sources of information for those who do this research.   Also, and equally as valuable, the obituaries offer an understanding of our own ancestors and other Czech families who settled in Texas communities.  We also get glimpses into their ways of life, their descendants, their family of origin, their religion, their occupation, their accomplishments: in other words, a social history of the Czechs.  The obituaries, current and past, certainly belong in this forum.   
      I have found here obituaries of Czech people  from my community in north Texas who I had lost track of and always wondered what happened to them, especially the ones who moved away. 
      Please keep the obituaries and thanks to those who submit them.  If one does not choose to read them,  there is always the "Delete" button.

      Yes, I want the obits to continue, too, considering that even those that, at the time of posting, might not fit into my family tree, they might with further research.

      I also hope the obits continue.  Several have been very helpful to our family tree.  A few minutes spent deleting those which do not apply works fine.  Keep up the good work!

      I appreciate all the obits.  Most of them do not apply to my family tree but I always look and some have been very helpful. 

      Thanks to those of you who do this research and share with the rest of us.

      One problem I would have with posting the older obits to some sort of archive is that, even if the "archive" is a folder within the group, I fear we will have the problem of "out of sight, out of mind," such that people will not remember that such an archive is there. (Interestingly enough, social psychologists have found that dictum often applies to long-distance relationships. )

      Could only current obits be posted to the group, others to archive, unless a request for a specific one? Thanks
