    Topic: Who Are The Rusyns?

    When: March 8, 2020 - 2:00 - 4:00 PM

    Where: Parma Snow Library, 2121 Snow Road, Parma, OH

    Are you Rusyn, Russian, Slovak, Ukrainian or something else?  Are you sure? How do you know?  Was Greek Catholic the religion listed on birth or marriage records?  Our history has been influenced by political and religious changes and this has caused many to think their heritage is cut and dried but you may find this is not necessarily correct.

    John Righetti has created a DVD to give viewers a history of these changes that made many Rusyns adopt a new identity, which was then passed on to descendants in the US and Europe.  Once you watch this video, you will be amazed that anyone identifies as a Rusyn but you will also find that maybe what you have been told by previous generations is not true. More importantly, you will learn why that happened.

    Come and join us to see if your ethnicity is really Rusyn and you now have new questions to research.  We have many resources to help you along the way and look forward to directing you to the answers you seek.

    All are welcome
