    Topic: Where Did The Rusyns Settle in the Cleveland Area?

    Presenter: John Sabol

    When: Thursday, May 12, 2016

    Where: Parma Library, 6696 Powers Blvd, Parma, OH 44129

    Time: 7:00 - 9:00 PM


    Where did your ancestors settle when they arrived in the Cleveland area?  Why did they settle there?  What did they accomplish?  John Sabol will tell us about the neighborhoods where our ancestors settled and perhaps why they moved and where they moved. Rusyns have a rich history in Cleveland and contributed a great deal to the community.  It should be a very informative evening.  If you're doing your family's genealogy, come and "put some flesh" on the stories about your ancestors.
