Anyone looking for a historic hotel? This one desperately needs an owner.

I suspect mailing the check and opening the packet was probably the easiest part of the process. On to the tough stuff!

Focus! Goal for 2012, all the 'stuff' I might need is also there. So, I'm very hopeful I can pull it off!

Hi Anne - good to hear from you! I'm not enough of a legal historian to tell you when the laws were changed (and presumably it varied from jurisdiction to jusrisdiction) - curtesy, like primogeniture, entailment, and other similar concepts, is not something you're not likely to run into in more recent research. Like those other concepts, it did have it's roots in English common law, so you may very well see it in early Australian records. An easy way to think of it, I suppose, is like dower for the widower - I believe its intent was to provide for the welfare of the children.

I see my last G+ post was a little over a year ago. Did I miss anything?

ResearchSeminar
Finding Your Czech/Slovak Roots
Saturday, March 31, 2012
9:00 am to 3:00 pm

Join the WRHS Genealogical Committee in welcoming presenter:
Mr. John T. Sabol, a Cleveland native, writer, and historian who has written three books plus several church histories and genealogical articles. He also serves on the Board of Directors for the Czechoslovak Genealogical Society International.

Morning Presentations
The morning session will consist of two presentations stressing the ultimate goal of finding the locations in the Czech and Slovak Republics where your ancestors came from. Since research in these countries is village-based it is of central importance to know your ancestral village. Once this is known, it opens doors to a number of research possibilities, including making contact with possible relatives today.

Afternoon Roundtable Discussion Groups
The afternoon session consists of roundtable discussions about finding your ancestral village. Participants will be able to share their successes and failures in hopes of learning from each other.
Roundtable participants are urged to bring documentation or clues regarding their ancestral origins in the Czech and Slovak Republics.Each discussion group will be moderated by a volunteer from the
Czechoslovak Genealogical Society International (CGSI).

Reservations are required:
Fee: $25

Ironically, as soon as I posted this article about tech tools - I realized I should have added spell-check to the list, as I misspelled "challenged" in the title!

Story
Introduction
Professional genealogical researcher, writer, and presenter.
Bragging rights
We all came from somewhere, even if we think that somewhere is nowhere. Often, we don't have to look too far back to find connections to others who came from that same somewhere (or nowhere) we did. It's that journey from a central point, subsequent scattering, and eventual reforming that I find fascinating. We're all the same, yet a little bit different, and that's really cool.
