St. Paul, Minnesota September 30, 2013 -- The study of genealogy has never been bigger since the introduction in March of 2010 of the American genealogy documentary series, Who Do You Think You Are?

The CGSI www.cgsi.org along with its major sponsors, CSA Fraternal Life of Oak Brook, IL and the Ministry of the Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic, Prague, are supporting the opportunity for genealogists with Czech, Slovak, Carpatho-Rusyn and German-Bohemian ancestry to further the pursuit of their family history by offering 43 presentations from Thursday October 24 through Saturday October 26.

The CGSI which celebrated its 25th Anniversary earlier this year, features among its 24 speakers, Rev. Jan Dus of Policka, Czech Republic, PhDr. Miroslav Koudelka of Olomouc, Czech Republic, and Michal Razus of Presov, Slovak Republic.

The Conference kicks off with tours of Chicago's ethnic neighborhoods and the Bohemian National Cemetery on Wednesday October 23. Other conference highlights include regional round-table networking sessions, a fashion show with Czech and Slovak folk dress, the CGSI's traveling library, and ethnic entertainment performed by Sokol Spirit of Brookfield, IL and Slovak Folk Ensemble Veselica of Chicago.
