In this video I talk to you about the importance of learning the language(s) of your ancestors. Even a beginner-level understanding of pronunciation and the letters/characters can get you so much farther with your research. I share with you an example from my own research – Czech – and how the english-speaking America changed the names of my ancestors.
Watch this video if you want to hear the numbers, including four, in Czech. http://youtu.be/EaS3mjZwFB8
