Polasek, Cathleen Witt Dunne, Matthew Booth, and Charlene Hurta will discuss the topics early life in Moravia, Texas; heritable disease genealogy; family history and copyright laws; the Moravian Lasske dialect; and TCGS in 2014. Other activities at the meeting will include a lunch of delicious Czech food, a silent auction, the chance to purchase Czech items at a sales table, and the opportunity to do genealogical research in the book room. Special services will be provided for scanning early Czech pioneer photographs and identifying old pictures.

     This week we will list the names of members of another East Texas chapter for the years 1878-1879. The data can be found on page 82 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.)
