Welcome in 2016

Our youngest (fourth) daughter was born few days ago, on the feast of Three Wise Men. Her name is Salome and we are back home from hospital now. Anyway, getting back to shape will take a bit longer, so I don't suppose I'll be able to write much in upcoming weeks. I'll try to answer comments and questions, but the rest has to wait. Thanks for understanding. :)

Loss of ancestors - pedigree collapse

This post is not only Czech genealogy, but common basics - but I had a need to write it. It's focused on loss of ancestors, ie. the ancestors paradox or pedigree collapse. That's situation when you "loose" number of ancestors due to fact that related people marry. An excellent article about how everyone on Earth is related brought this topic to my attention.
