Woman's Glory, Slovenian Kitchen

Woman's Glory, Slovenian Kitchen | Slovenian Genealogy Research | Scoop.it

For those with Slovenian ancestry, the Slovenian Union of America website does have a page of genealogy links. The downside to this cookbook is that not all recipes are attributed. However, there are plenty of names in this book...

Woman's Glory - The Kitchen by the Slovenian Women's Union of America is 275 pages of everything from introductions, recipes, and kitchen tips to photos, some street addresses and information about the Slovenian Women's Union. This cookbook published in 1953 is in honor of the organization's silver anniversary. From the Preface by the cookbook's editor Albina Novak, the reader learns that she had wanted to compile a cookbook that "would serve as an instructor to the Slovenian women of today who wish to include in their homemaking dishes for which their mothers have always been famous." Four pages in the beginning of the book provide information and names about members of the Slovenian Women's Union

Poll: Have you discovered an ancestral home?

Poll: Have you discovered an ancestral home? | Slovenian Genealogy Research | Scoop.it

Census records are a fantastic tool.
However, the details in the records leave much to the imagination. That is - of course - until you investigate the address listed on the census entry.

My Heritage asks in the poll if you've visited any ancestral homes. Alternatively, you could leave a comment to the blog.

How to start my genealogy research? | Slovenian Genealogy Research | Scoop.it

Janez Toplišek (2005), Rodoslovje (=Genealogy; in Slovenian; 36o pages).

 

The book is recommended to beginners and experienced researchers due to many useful information on sources for genealogy research in Slovenia and abroad (Status animarum, registers, census and population records, citizenship). The book gives first information on historical geography and cartography, land and cadastral registers, feudal land registers, Slovenians in emigration as well as on tools, useful for research (Genealogical computer programs, Internet sources and genetic genealogy).

An Interwiev for the Linden Tree Magazin

There are many interesting stories in genealogy magazins. Here is an opportunity offered to publish yours in the Linden Tree.

Rose Marie Macek Jisa, the President of Slovenian Genealogy Society International, Inc. has recently sent to her Slovenian colleague Peter Hawlina the following sample questions to answer about one's search for family in America.

1. How and when did you learn you had family in America? Any interesting stories passed down from generation to generation?

2. What information did you have that tied them to your family?

3. What steps did you take to get in touch with them, i.e., did you write letters? did you make phone calls? did you contact them using the internet? If yes, how did you find their addresses?

4. What success have you had in finding your family?

5. How were they able to help you? What kind of information were they able to share with you, i.e., have they share photos with you . . . .

7. Have you shared your family tree with them?

8. Have you been able to develop an on-going relationship with them?

9. Do you plan to travel to America to meet them or are they planning to come to Slovenia to meet you?

We’d like to add a short paragraph about who you are, i.e., where you live in Slovenia, when you became interested in genealogy, etc.

 

Please add anything else you feel would add to your story. If you do not know the English language, write it in Slovenian and I will have it translated to English. Better still, if you do know English but feel hesitant about writing it, please write it anyhow – we will be happy to edit it. Before publishing your article in our Linden Tree publication, I will email a copy to you for your approval. If possible, it would be nice to have a copy of a page of your family tree and/or a photo of you to accompany your article.

Thank you so much!
