Hello, on the 5th of November quarterly meeting, I asked for assistance on finding locations in Czech Republic and Slovakia as my grandparents immigrated in the early 1900s. I am planning a trip to Czech Republic and Slovakia in September 2023, and I would like to get started on where to find a local genealogist, as well as records associated with my family. Initially, I would like to know if anyone can help with pinpointing these locations.
Thank you! Linda Chambliss
