Texas Czech Genealogical Society to host Czech Roots and Christmas Memories
The Texas Czech Genealogical Society announces its 4th Annual Czech Roots and Christmas Memories event, which will be held on Saturday, Oct. 15 at the Caldwell Civic/Visitor Center in Caldwell, Texas.
The informative and exciting day will begin with registration and morning refreshments at 8:30 a.m. Speakers and topics for the day include: Brenda Lincke Fisseler, “Can You Prove It? How to Document and Cite Your Sources;” James Hejl, “Life in 1980 Behind the Iron Curtain Rule of Communist Russia” and “Relationship Charts Made Easy;” Edwin Wallek, Jr., “Recalling Early Christmas Memories;” and Bette Stockbauer-Harris presenting, “Czech Letters of Jan and Ferdinand Pribyl,” as well as “Ferdinand’s Nativity Art.”
Following a Christmas lunch of Turkey and Dressing with all the trimmings, auctioneer, Harvey Johnson, will entertain the crowd with a live auction. The growing cache of auction items include antiques and unique, one of a kind treasures. All auction items are donated by our members and friends.
To kick off our Friends of the SPJST Library Fundraising Campaign, the first such campaign in our history, TCGS will be offering beautiful Czech Flag Christmas ornaments for $14.00 each. The proceeds from the sale of these ornaments, as well as the proceeds from the live auction, will go toward purchasing equipment needed for the library, including computers, software programs, printer, and several hundred new genealogical and family research books.
Our famous Sales Table, offering items from the Czech Republic, will contain some brand new items, making this the perfect time to do Christmas shopping, and our highly regarded Book Room, with experienced genealogists, will be available to help you with your genealogical questions.
Full early registration for the entire day’s events, including lunch, for members is $25; full early registration for non-members is $35. (Early registration deadline is Oct. 1). After Oct. 1, full registration for members will be $30 and full registration for non-members will be $40.
Registration at the door will be $45 for all attendees. Full information and registration forms can be found at www.txczgs.org. For questions, please contact Bennie Stasny at 512-836-8084, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
