The New Jersey Chapter of the Carpatho-Rusyn Society will hold its
Annual Meeting Saturday, October 13, 2012 at 2:00 PM at the Wayne
Public Library, 461 Valley Road, Wayne, NJ. Following a brief
business meeting, Virginia E. Schein, Ph.D. will present a program
entitled “My Carpatho-Rusyn Roots Search Adventure.” Dr. Schein’s
video presentation begins with her search for family records and the
“discovery” of her Carpatho-Rusyn ethnic identity. It culminates
with her summer of 2011 visit to the birth villages of her
grandparents in Ukraine. There she lived with a Rusyn family as she
and her translator explored the villages of Rus’ke and Kajdanove, as
well as nearby Uzhgorod and Mukachevo. Just prior to that visit, Dr.
Schein attended the Second International Summer School in Rusyn
Language and Culture in Presov, Slovakia. She will introduce the
video and answer questions afterwards. For further information,
please call (973) 540-0871.
