KORENY - CSAGSI Journal - Published Quarterly

Our journal is filled with informative articles related to Czech and Slovak history, culture and genealogy. The purpose of KORENY is to publish the genealogical and historical materials of our ancestors, to stimulate interest in the history and culture of our ancestors, and to recognize the great accomplishments and contributions of our ancestral people.

Members are encouraged to submit original articles which comply with the KORENY Journal Policy as stated above. Articles are accepted for inclusion as space permits and will be subject to review and editing as necessary.

A complete index to all articles published in the KORENY from 1996 to 2018 has been completed.  Click here to view the Koreny Index in PDF format.

CSAGSI also publishes a newsletter, that contains membership news and activities.

Join CSAGSI and you will receive both the KORENY and the Newsletter as part of your yearly membership.
