      studying Hungarian, I learned this word meant Russian. Is that the same
      as Rusyn?

        Hi Paul:

        In modern Hungarian, the term "OROSZ" means a "Russian" and the terms
        "RUTEN" and "RUSZIN" mean "Ruthenian" or "Rusyn." It is my understanding
        that in
        the past, the term "OROSZ" was sometimes used to describe both a Russian
        and a
        Rusyn (Ruthenian) and that a distinction was not always made between the
        two
        groups.

        Best regards,

        David
