It’s time again for Saturday Night Genealogy Fun with Randy Seaver on Genea-Musings.
Here is this week’s challenge:
Whatever genealogy fun you want to do – please spend an hour and do it! Then tell us about it in your own blog post, and leave a comment here which I will add to the Comments after moderation.
I’m going to cheat a little bit here because my genealogy fun was actually five hours, one per day from Monday to Friday, listening to the 2021 Carpatho-Rusyn Research Center Summer Seminar.
While most genealogy webinars are aimed towards beginner/intermediate level researchers, the C-RRC seminar sessions were quite scholarly in their focus. I missed most of Monday’s talk because we were out doing some necessary errands. I’ll have to wait until the sessions are posted on YouTube
Monday – How the Carpatho-Rusyns Were Taught to Think Like White People with Robert Zecker
Tuesday – Welcome! A Textbook of Rusyn with E. Wayles Browne
Wednesday – The Poetry and Politics of Andrii Karabelesh with Nick Kupensky
Thursday – Young Rusyn Professionals: North America – Roundtable with Alexandra Benc, Johna Cook and Isabel Fernando
Friday – Young Rusyn Professionals: Europe – Roundtable with Tomas Kalynyc, Myhal Lyzhechko, Peter Stefanak and Marta Watral
This is a yearly presentation. To view the 2020 seminars, go to YouTube and just search for Rusyn summer. The five sessions will all appear near the top of the results list.
