Most genealogical and historical societies in North America and in the Czech Republic publish magazines and newsletters. The articles often include:

  • Family genealogies and pedigrees
  • Transcripts of church records, migration lists, and cemetery records
  • Helpful articles on research methodology
  • Information about local records, archives, and services
  • Book advertisements and book reviews
  • Research advertisements
  • Queries or requests for information about specific ancestors that can help you contact other interested researchers

Many Czech societies and organizations publish genealogical periodicals. These may be in Czech. Much of their content is devoted to compiled genealogies of native families and local history. They also publish queries or advertisements for genealogical information. The following are some major examples:

Naše rodina "Our Family". (FHL US/CAN Book 973 D25nas).For more information see the Web site: http://cgsi.org/

Heraldika a Genealogie. (FHL INTL Book 943.7 B2Lb). More information can be found online at http://www.heraldica.cz/

Obtaining Periodicals

Copies of periodicals are available from the local societies that publish them. Major archives with genealogical collections have copies of many periodicals, particularly those representing the area they serve.

The Family History Library subscribes to some Czech periodicals. These are listed in the catalog in several ways. If you know the title, search the Author/Title section. To find periodicals in the Place search, use the following approaches:

CZECH REPUBLIC - PERIODICALS

CZECH REPUBLIC - GENEALOGY - PERIODICALS

CZECH REPUBLIC - HISTORY - PERIODICALS

CZECH REPUBLIC - SOCIETIES - PERIODICALS

Also see the "Societies" section.
