Our Villages


Many CGSI members have researched and even visited their ancestral villages, acquiring information, stories, and photos along the way. The Our Villages project helps members share and connect.

Use the map or listings below to visit a specific village's page.

Share Your Connection

Maybe it was when you first entered your great-grandparent’s village. Perhaps it was when you were invited to and attended a cousin’s wedding. Or it may have been the time you sat at a table and shared a meal with people who treat you like family.

For those who have been fortunate and made a connection across time and space with relatives in the Czech or Slovak Republics, we want to hear your story.

Our hope is to preserve member’s stories so they:

  • show the connections being made by multiple people, in various places, over periods of time
  • inspire others to make connections
