Preserving a Texas-Czech Family Legacy

September 9, 2023 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Interested in preserving your family history for both your own kin and researchers? Then this program is for you! Dawn Orsak will join us to discuss the history of her ancestors, the Morkovsky family, and self-publishing A.J. Morkovsky’s autobiography. Orsak will review how she acquired the family papers and other items, as well as the process of finding an archive to serve as permanent home that would make the materials available to future scholars.

Dawn Orsak is a 4th-generation Texas Czech. She is the Executive Director of the Philosophical Society of Texas, but her working background is with Texas history, culture, and food organizations. She is the author of a forthcoming cookbook about Texas Czech cuisine for University of Texas Press.
