The Czech Heritage Club has no physical boundaries. It is open to anyone who is interested
in preserving and promoting Czech culture; no matter his or her heritage or where they live.

Our organization originated in April 2002 as an outgrowth of the Czech Language and
Culture classes. Marian Topic taught these classes in the New Prague community. Since that time, the group has grown from a social club, to an organization involved in its community.

In 2007 by-laws were developed.
The Club is a 501C-3 organization (Incorporated in 2016) with members
actively promoting Czech heritage thru different events.

August 2017 meeting 
Genealogy

The August meeting of the Czech Heritage Club will be held in the upper room of the New Prague City Hall on Wednesday August 16th beginning at 7 PM.

After a brief meeting, the program will be "Czeching out the Czech". The program lead by George Mikiska will deal with genealogy. How to start your family tree, where to look for information both locally, nationally and worldwide, some help in Czech translations and helpful websites will be among the topics discussed.

Come with your questions and see if we can point you in the right direction.
You need not be a member to attend.
