About This Website - The idea

The idea for this site originated at the 2004 Souhrada Family Reunion during the business meeting conducted by Anton Vanicek.  It was concluded that a more economical way of sharing information about our family history, genealogy, and news needed to be explored.  We are hopeful that the Souhrada Family Website meets that need, and is a valued addition to the Souhrada Family Newsletter.

Your Souhrada family history, stories, ancestral pictures, and other items of interest are needed and welcome!  If you would like to contribute to the development of this site, email the webmaster.  Please send comments, ideas, and updates as well. We look forward to hearing from you!

Why we share our family experiences [from an article by Leota Campbell]   

In Home With A Heart, Dr. James Dobson says: "The lyrics in an African folk song say that when an old person dies, it's as if a library has burned down. This is true. To preserve this heritage for our children we must tell them where we've been and how we got to this moment. Sharing about our faith, about our early family experiences, about the obstacles we overcame, of the failures we suffered, can bring a family together and give it a sense of identity."

There's a richness of family heritage in each person's life that will be lost if it isn't passed on to the next generation. How often do we wonder about the past, knowing that only our parents or grandparents could enlighten our wonderment, but we're stuck in our wonderment.....it's too late.....they're gone and can't share their experiences or memories with us.

Our Souhrada Family Newsletter is becoming not only our means of communication to know other members of this huge family, but by sharing the events in our lives and sharing our memories, we are recording Souhrada Family History and Genealogy. Through this means, we are coming to know who we are, giving us a sense of Souhrada identity.
