» P.A.T.H. Finders » Articles & Literature

The Archives is where we post the work of our associate family historians and other scholars.

This includes previously published and unpublished articles, annotations and translations of other larger pieces (including historical essays and biographies of noteworthy Czech, Polish, Slovak, and Ukrainian emigrants). Occaisionally, there will also be a review of some particular useful resource that should help further the general understanding of contemporary genealogical research in these countries.

Under the heading "Travel" you will also find stories from the road, based on our own experience, as well as episodes submitted by our clients and friends to assist others with their travel planning.
