Carpatho-Rusyn Society's New Jersey Chapter presents:

"Parish Commemorative Histories: A Potential Genealogical Resource", presented by John Schweich

Saturday, September 24, 2016 at 1:30 PM

John Schweich is a member of the C-RS Board and former president of the C-RS DC Chapter. He has made presentations to the DC, Eastern PA, and Youngstown chapters. He has also authored the following articles which appear in the genealogical journal Naše Rodina: "Brookside AL: An Early and Improbable Slavic Outpost in the Deep South" (December 2014) and "Carpatho-Rusyn Fraternals: Their Origins, History and Present State" (March 2016). He has a very large (>1800 volumes) and very likely unique collection of parish histories which contain photographic and historical detail often available nowhere else.
