Nov 7 Lecture on Immigration to Anthracite Coal Regions/Genealogy Exhibit
- The Pennsylvania Humanities Council is sponsoring a lecture on the history of Ukrainian Immigration to the Anthracite Coal Regions on Sunday, November 7th, at 2:00 PM. The lecture will be given by Dr. Paula Holoviak, Assistant Professor of Political Science at Kutztown University of Pennsylvania. The location is the Ukrainian Homestead on Beaver Run Drive in Lehighton, Pa. You can find directions here http://www.ukrhomestead.com/directx.html.
The lecture will be followed by an exhibit on Ukrainian/Lemko genealogy presented by fellow BT-er, Michael Buryk. He is a Lemko/Ukrainian American whose research and writing has focused on the 19th and 20th century immigration to the U.S. of Ukrainians/Lemkos from the Sanok area of southeastern Poland. Mr. Buryk's articles have appeared in publications such as "The Ukrainian Weekly."
The Kazka Ukrainian Folk Ensemble, of which Dr. Holoviak is the director, will also perform.
If there are any materials to share after the presentation (such as Powerpoint presentations), we will try to acquire those for interested BT members.
