Newsletter for Sept/Oct 2000
Vi'tanje & Powitanie! (Welcome!) For this issue we have TWO wonderful
inclusions thanks to Slovak tour-guide extraordinaire Helene B. Cincebeaux.
The first item is the itinerary for next years special 11-night, 13-day
TARG area genealogy trip next August (!!!) For those who went last year,
they know how great and productive this was. This new planned trip is an
even better, longer trip with more time actually in and around our TARG
villages, including four nights in Poland. If you want to go, contact her AS
SOON as you can and tell her you are a member of TARG. She has faithful
travelers who love to go with her every year to new destinations like
this -- but we want to have as many TARG folks go on this specially designed
TARG tour as possible and spaces are limited.
The second item is Part 1 of the latest "Slovak Pride" listing of
surnames and researchers from northern Orava and Spis as well as southern Poland.
Helene can put you in touch with these researchers -- just send her an
self-addresses stamped envelope and she'll address it and mail it for you.
If your name(s) is(are) here and there is an error, she wants to know.
(There will be three more parts coming in TARG Newsletters!)
