The Czechoslovak Genealogical Society International (CGSI) is excited to announce the 2021 CGSI Genealogical & Cultural Conference will be held virtually from October 11-16, 2021 with the theme of "Celebrating Connections". 

A CGSI conference is a great place to learn, share, and connect with the genealogy, history, and culture of those from the Czech and Slovak ancestral lands of Central Europe. This new format allows you to connect with information, resources, and other attendees via presentations, networking opportunities, and online social events.
