Ljubljana TV 24UR News Interviews SGSI Members on the 2016 Genealogy Explorations Trip 

"A group of Americans have been looking for their roots in Slovenia in recent weeks, but many only know that their grandparents once came from this country ... The best written sources are often in parishes, in archives, and some went from the village to villages and asked in houses, where they thought they could find someone. And how did the search end?"
