     On 28 September 2013, the Texas Czech Genealogical Society (TCGS) will be hosting a genealogical research conference at the Caldwell Civic/Visitor Center in Caldwell, Texas, from 9:00 a. m. to 4:30 p. m. Registration begins at 8:00 a. m. Based on the theme, “Great Ingredients (Individuals) = Great Casseroles (Families),” sessions will focus on the following topics: Moravian churches, how to research Czech vital statistics registers on the internet, things Czech American genealogists should know about the history of Czech lands, and professions of Czech ancestors. Featured speaker will be Dr. Miraslav Koudelka of the Czech Republic.

     Other activities at the conference will include a silent raffle to benefit the society’s publication fund and the opportunity to do research in the expanded Czech library books, which includes the Wendt Library Collection. Lunch will be provided.

     Registration fees postmarked on or before 18 September 2013 will be $35 for members of the society and $40 for non-members. After that date, the cost for registration will be $40 for members and $45 for non-members. At the door fees will be $45 for all attendees.

     This week we continue the list of the names of members of Ruthven Chapter in Henderson, the county seat of Rusk County, for 1878-1879. The data can be found on page 80 of TRANSACTIONS OF THE M. E. GRAND ROYAL ARCH CHAPTER OF TEXAS AT ITS THIRTIETH ANNUAL CONVOCATION HELD AT THE MASONIC TEMPLE, IN THE CITY OF HOUSTON, ON THURSDAY, THE ELEVENTH DAY OF DECEMBER, A. D. 1879, A. I. 2409, AT THREE O’CLOCK P. M., which was published in Houston by W. H. Coyle, Printer and Lithographer, in 1880. (In the title, the M and E are each followed by three dots, representing the Triple Tau emblem of the organization. However, for simplicity, a period is used in this column. Because many of organization’s names of offices also include the Triple Tau emblem, only the initials of those ranks will be used in this column.)
