Legacy QuickGuidesTM are quickly becoming one of the more popular resources for genealogists. Each guide contains four pages of valuable information covering a variety of genealogy research topics, and are written by genealogists and family historians who are experts in the subject areas. Today we announce the availability of two new Legacy QuickGuides: Lineage Societies and Genealogy by Julie Tarr and Czech Genealogy by Lisa Alzo.
Sometimes the decision to join a lineage society is easy because you have already done your research and know you have an ancestor by which you would qualify for membership—and you can prove that lineal relationship. Perhaps you are stalling because you do not know where to start or may find yourself intimidated by the process. Other times, you may not be aware that you have an ancestor lurking in your tree that could qualify you for membership in a society. Or perhaps you are missing proof for a link or two in your lineage.
The Lineage Societies and Genealogy Legacy QuickGuide contains useful information to provide you with an introduction to lineage societies and some tools and tips to help you with your research and the application process. With a little know-how and encouragement, you will be well on your way to exploring the many lineage societies out there and furthering the research of your ancestors.
Researching your Czech ancestors can be challenging if you don't know where or how to begin. Boundary changes, record availability, and unfamiliar languages can complicate the process. To ensure success, you will need to utilize a variety of print and online resources. The Czech Genealogy Legacy QuickGuide contains useful information to get you started including the best places to identify an immigrant ancestor’s original name and hometown, the key North American records to search, and how to locate vital registers, land, and other documents in the Czech Republic.
