Meeting Friends in... (Prague - 5291 km)

(Prague, 22.10.2013 - 23.10.2013) Golden October weather 2013 in the Golden City of Prague and - corresponding hereto - I had the privilege to meet friends and fellow researchers Marla Raucher Osborn and Jay Osborn.

There were so many common experiences to share, that we could easily sit at Cafe McQueen for hours and we wouldn't ever get tired of our very interesting discussion. Yes, there are so many parallels between genealogical and historical research activities in Galicia - Marla's focus - and Bukovina and no, the experiences, we are facing, are not always rewarding. Nevertheless, Marla's statement "We owe it to our history to take active responsibility!" has an audience "in Ukraine, at Facebook, in the world". Read the insightful interview with Marla Raucher Osborn, conducted by Christian Herrmann in March 2013:

WE OWE IT TO OUR HISTORY TO TAKE ACTIVE RESPONSIBILITY

Where is the "like" button? . . . I enjoyed an all too brief meeting with Marla in August - and I'm looking forward to the next opportunity.
