Oct 21st in Bridgeport: Visiting the Homeland

Uzhgorod view

Are you curious what is happening in the “old country,” our ancestors’ homeland in the Carpathians? Are you interested in visiting? Or, if you have visited, are you interested in sharing your story?

Lemko Association president Paul Best visited Slovakia, Ukraine, and Poland this summer. He will share photos and the impressions of what is going on in and around the Carpathian homeland that he took away from that trip. There will be an open discussion after Paul’s presentation. Come participate or just listen!

This event is sponsored by the New England chapter of the Carpatho-Rusyn Society. It will take place Sunday, October 21st at 11:00am, at St. John the Baptist Carpatho-Russian Orthodox Church, 364 Mill Hill Avenue, Bridgeport, Connecticut.

The slide show and discussion will take place in the church hall following services. Come early at 9:00am for Holy Liturgy followed by coffee and a pirohy sale. Or come right at 11:00am for the presentation.

We look forward to seeing you there! For more information, call Paul at 860-345-7997 or contact us.

    I have purchased the map entitled “Carpatho-Rusyn Settlement (at the outset of the 20th century with additional data from 1881 and 1806)” by Paul Robert Magocsi. It has been very helpful to me and my family.

    Does this Lemkovyno map you offer have a lot of additional information that the above mentioned map does not have?

    Thank you.

      Hi Mica,

      Since I don’t have a copy of the map you mentioned, I’m not sure how much additional information is on our map. I have forwarded your message to LA president Paul Best, who does have a copy of that map.
      Hopefully he can give you a better answer.

    In 2008 my father and I traveled to Lemkovyna to visit the villages where mij dido y baba were raised (I met Wladic at the vatra). We spent a week there. I’ve done a presentation about it for the C-RS group in NJ and could do it again if anyone wants to see it. I could also provide a rather extensive “diary” of my trip, along with many photos, if you would like to publish some or all of it in Karpatska Rus. If so, just let me know.
    Trymaj sia,
    Stefan
