Here’s what has gone on and what is going on with CGSI.

CGSI Quarterly Meeting - Jan 2004

Dr. Stepanka Korytova spoke on Czech Emigration and Immigration – 19th Century

CGSI Houston Conference - Oct 2003

The 9th Genealogical and Cultural Conference met our objective of providing a well rounded educational opportunity for our membership. The Houston Conference was tailored more heavily toward people with Moravian interests because of the large distribution of Texas Czechs with roots in the Moravian province of the former Austro-Hungarian Empire.

We brought in three speakers whose permanent residence is in Morovia, namely Miroslav Koudelka, Karel Kysilka, and Martin Pytr, and two speakers who were born and/or lived in Moravia, Nadia Grosser-Nagarajan and Frank Soural.
