Stories of German-Bohemians

Since 1984 the German-Bohemian Heritage Society has been dedicated to sharing the stories of German-Bohemians through programs and research. Over the last twenty plus years, our newsletters have covered personal stories, genealogical research, and historical perspectives on all aspects of German-Bohemian heritage and culture. For the first time, the best articles have been gathered in a single volume. This one-of-a-kind book has more than 400 pages of fascinating stories and information, making it the best single resource for learning more about German-Bohemians.
$34.95 plus $4 postage. See order form.
