"The Origins of Carpatho-Rusyns. Are we Vikings or Cossacks?"
Presented by Dr. Paul J. Best

Dr. Paul J. Best, Director of the Carpathian Institute, President of the Lemko Association, and President of the New England Chapter of the Carpatho-Rusyn Society will discuss the question of the origin of the Carpatho-Rusyns; Are we Vikings or Cossacks? Some members have supposed that the population of the Carpathian Mountains in Central Europe is of a rather exotic source. Let us talk about that!
