Meetings and events are open to the public.
Our quarterly newsletter, Ceske Stopy, is published in March, June, September and December. It contains articles of interest to researchers on a variety of current topics specific to Texas Czechs, announces future programs, and provides helpful hints on computer research. Beginning with the January 2015 issue, TCGS will be “going green” by emailing our newsletter to our members with email; the Ceske Stopy will also be posted in our "Members Only" section. Members without email will receive a copy via the U.S. Postal service.
