CARPATHO/RUSYN - These sites focus on Carpatho-Rusyn genealogy, it is recognized that the ethnic background of persons from areas where Carpatho-Rusyns lived (primarily where Poland, Slovakia, the Ukraine, and Hungary adjoin or nearly adjoin) is often in doubt. Many other ethnic groups previously lived or now live in this area (Polish, Slovak, Hungarian, Ukrainian, German, Jewish, and others). Understandably, many persons whose ancestors come from this area are unclear of their ethnic origins.

  • Bald Mountain Childhood - Centered around Mary Pawlak, this is an autobiographic, biographic and historical description of growing up in a Carpatho-Rusyn family on Bald Mountain near Wilkes-Barre Pennsylvania during the 1920's and 30's.

  • Carpathian Connection - The creation and administration of this web page will be for the exclusive purpose of historical education and genealogical research related to those individuals who were from the former Carpathian territories and were of Ruthenian/Carpatho-Rusyn heritage. We will also take into account the influence other nationalities had upon the Ruthenians

  • Dictionary of Period Russian Names - Being a compilation of over 25,000 Russian names, taken from period sources (and some of their Slavic roots).

  • Food, Music and Art - Walnuts, apples, tomatoes, peppers, homemade wine, pear compote -- this is the seasonal fare in autumn of people in the Transcarpathian region of the Ukraine. West of the Carpathian mountains, bordered by Slovakia, Romania and Hungary, this tiny "oblast" is considered Ukraine's Wine Country. As in southern France, the local dialect is musical and sometimes difficult for other Ukrainians to understand. Historically a home for members of the ruling classes from many European nations, castles and their ruins dot the landscape.

  • Lemkivshchyna - These are high resolution [ 100,000 : 1 ] maps of the south-eastern corner of Poland, with a small encroachment into Ukraine and the Slovak Republic. These maps were recently released for public use by the Headquarters of the Polish Army, Carthographic Division, Warsaw 1994. Each centimeter corresponds to 1 kilometer, or 1 inch equals approximately 1.5 miles. Therefore on individual maps, the grid is 2 km x 2 km. Due to high resolution, each of these maps is about 300 kb in size, so you might wish to view these while at work or schule.

  • Podkarpackie Province - In our context here, structure is mean to be geo-political structure. ""Powiat" is a Polish term which roughly translates to "district." Poland's interior is divided into 16 wojewodztwa (provinces - more accurately voivodships). Each woj. is divided into powiaty - in the case of Podkarpackie, there are 20 powiaty. It's kind of like a U.S. state being divided into counties. Each powiat is further divided into gminy (municipalities), and there can be several villages within a gmina. These terms are political in nature. A gmina is the lowest level of governmental divisions." - Website quote
