Almanacs in Carpatho-Rusyn History and Culture

Another article I wrote for the 10th anniversary almanac of the Carpatho-Rusyn Society, the Rusyn-American Almanac of the Carpatho-Rusyn Society 2004-2005, was the introduction, which also served as a survey of almanacs published throughout Carpatho-Rusyn history in the European homeland and the U.S.

Since various Rusyn immigrant-founded organizations' almanacs are an essential source in writing the history of Carpatho-Rusyn immigrants in Pennsylvania, I am happy to reproduce the article here. (Click each page to view it larger-size.)
