Genealogy Aid for Bohemian (Czech) Genealogy. First English Translation of Table of Contents of 1881 Edition of Amerikán Národni Kalendář
Onward To Our Past® is proud to announce the newest addition in our ongoing project to translate, from their original Czech to English, the Tables of Contents (Obsah) of each of the 79 (some say eighty) editions of Amerikán Národni Kalendář.
Today we are adding the Table of Contents (Obsah) for the 1881 edition.
As with every undertaking in genealogy this was a joint effort and we would be remiss if we did not take a moment here to thank our Czech partner, Martin Pytr, for his wonderful assistance with this translation. If you haven’t already you should check out Martin’s website and all the services he offers at http://www.czechkin.com. His specialty is, as we here at Onward To Our Past® like to say is “anything and all things Moravian”. Martin is an exceptional researcher and does exceptionally solid Czech genealogy work.
