Benefits of Membership


The Czech Heritage Society of Texas is a non-denominational, non-profit organization.

There are quarterly state meetings that are held in different locations.  This is a good time to meet fellow Tex-Czechs from through out the state.  Reference books are available for your use or purchase.  Genealogy conferences are held on a yearly basis in conjunction with one of the state meetings.

The Czech Heritage Society of Texas publishes Cesky Hlas (Czech Voice), a quarterly newsletter that keeps members informed about the state society and county chapter activities and includes articles of cultural, historical and genealogical interest. CHS also publishes an annual membership list that includes surnames being researched by each member. The CHS has also published many genealogical resource books, which have been placed in libraries and has been involved in cultural and genealogical exchange programs between Texas Czechs and the people of the Czech Republic.

Our web site is "czechheritage.org".  At this site you can find many things that would be of interest to anyone.  For the people who like music (and what Czech doesn’t), you can listen to live Czech radio, down load music, get a list of Czech bands in Texas, and some locations of dances.  There are several places to list the surnames that your are hunting for.  A egroup mail room is also available to assist your searches.

Chapters of the Czech Heritage Society have been established and continue to be established in locations where Texas Czechs have an interest in preserving and promoting their Czech heritage.  The present county chapters are located in the following areas:
