Continuity and discontinuity were the key words of the scientific conference held in Martin, Slovakia in late November 2008. The participants intended to summarize development in genealogy, heraldry and related disciplines in Slovakia, compare it with development in other countries, and then present their findings at the XXIX International Congress of Genealogic and Heraldic Sciences in Bratislava in 2010. Despite the fact that finally the international congress was held in Stuttgart, Germany, the participants in its preliminary conference fulfilled their task. This anthology introduces their perspective on the development of families, genealogy, heraldry and related disciplines in Slovakia and partly in other countries too.
