Summer 2020 online Carpatho-Rusyn seminars start now


With many of us working from home or having less opportunity than usual to get together in person, some online gatherings might be just the thing.

So we wanted to let you know about some live online events focusing on our people’s history and culture, organized by the Carpatho-Rusyn Research Center. You can join with your webcam and ask questions live, or just watch from your computer. They are at different times of day, on different days of the week– find the ones that fit your schedule!

The seminars are free to attend, but you have to pre-register using a free Zoom account.  Once you register with your email address, you’ll get a link that lets you join the seminar. You have to sign up for each seminar separately.

They start tomorrow, June 24th, so don’t delay– check out the list below and click each link to register now!
