I. Family group meeting of members and friends of the Trstenský Family on 26-28 September 2008 in Trstená (Orava region)
The year 2008 is of special significance to the Trstenský Family for two reasons:
- The Trstenský Family received armales from the Emperor and Hungarian King Ferdinand III in January 1638. The Šoltýs Family was thereby granted the status of nobility. In January 2008 we commemorated the 370th anniversary of this event.
- On 28 March 2008 we celebrated the 100th anniversary of the birth of the late Msgr. Viktor Trstenský, papal prelate and a significant figure of the Trstenský Family.
Similar family group meetings are organised by members of other families, such as the Medvecký Family from Medvedzie (Orava region) with the most recent meeting being held in 2005.
Our I. Family group meeting of members and friends of the Trstenský Family is scheduled for 26-28 September 2008 in Trstená (Orava region). The key date of the meeting is Saturday, 27 September 2008.
