Jim's Book - Dorchester, Big in History and Happenings


Why are some people interested about the happenings of the past; while others could care less about where or who they came from. The answer - it’s in the genes. For me it started when I was encouraged by Mater and Pater to write to the relatives in Germany during my high school days. My paternal grandparents, my dad and his brother had been writing to their kinfolk in first Bohemia (The Czech Republic) and then Germany ever since the grandparents immigrated in 1882. Two generations and four trips later, written communication across the sea continues. A vast amount of data about the Jantsch’s ancestry has been successfully gathered and this success led me to an even greater interest in the subject of History and therefore the reason for the following pages.
