What an interesting little book...
- Hi All,
I just got my hands on an interesting little book that's hot off
the presses: "Emigrants From the Southeastern Moravia To Texas 1850-1915"
by Dr. Jan Mikeska of Prague, C.R.
Dr. Mikeska is one of the guest speakers at the free CHS
Genealogy Seminar in Corpus Christi this Friday and Saturday, August 1 &
2 at the Corpus Christ Sokol Hall. Anyone who's interested in
genealogical information about Bohemia, Moravia, Silesia, Slovakia and
Lusatia are invited to attend. There's no charge for the seminar but you
should call in your reservation for the luncheon. Details on the CHS
website are at: www.czechheritage.org
Dr. Mikeska brought a batch of the books with him, and when
they're gone, they're gone. It's got 262 pages full of information and
names of immigrants who emigrated to the US (many directly to Texas) from
the Wallachia (Valachia) Region of Moravia with village name and, where
available, birth, death and marriage info. I stopped counting the names
when I got to 500!
An example of the listings (without the full details<g>) is as
Lastovica, Jan 1841
Lastovica, Jan 1870
Lastovica, Pavel 1876
Lastovica, Pavel L 1872
Lastovicova, Katerina, 1872
Lastovicova Katerina, 1874
Lastovicova, Rozina 1870
So, I'm excited and hope to see each and everyone of you down in
Corpus this weekend. It certainly will be an exciting seminar.
Sharing. It's what it's all about!

- Hi Ann,
I hope you read this. I have tried to answer your e-mail, but my
e-mails keep getting bounced back. Error is:

Is that your correct address?
