Carpatho-Rusyn Heritage: Online Resources

In this third post about Carpatho-Rusyn Heritage, I’ll be sharing some online resources. Most of these websites will be devoted to Carpatho-Rusyn heritage, but a few will be links to businesses where items can be purchased, such as maps, which can’t easily be found in an online version.

Fee-Based Products:

1. The Carpatho-Rusyn Research Center – This is a must-visit website because of the wide variety of Rusyn-themed items for sale. A great starting point for any researcher is a map of all the Rusyn-identified villages. Map of Carpatho-Rusyn Settlement is $18.00 and a unique item that isn’t readily found.

2. Carpatho-Rusyn Society – Its goal is to “perpetuate the living heritage of the Rusyn people.” Memberships are available, but the website also has a number of links to learn about the Rusyn people.
