Czech and Slovak Genealogy

We just added a great new book to our collection: The Family Tree Polish, Czech & Slovak Genealogy Guide. Here are few other resources specifically for Czech & Slovak research.

Archives in Chicago:
Archives of Czechs and Slovaks Abroad
A collection of materials and personal papers about the Czech and Slovak immigrant experience. Contains publications from communities across the US and also has information on thousands of Czechoslovakian refugees from 1940s.

Czech & Slovak American Genealogy Society of Illinois
The Society keeps a collection of books and materials for Czech & Slovak research. They are particularly helpful with research of immigrant ancestors in Chicago.

Online Research:
Czech Census Searchers
This site identifies all of the regional, district, and city archives in the Czech Republic and identifies the major records you can find in each archive.

Researching Czech Church Records on the Internet
A personal website that explains how to find Church Records for the Czech Republic online.
