http://www.lemko.org was created primarily for those whose roots come from that part of Galicia known as Lemkovyna, or Lemkivshchyna in Ukrainian, mostly descendants of the turn of the century "Ruthenian/Rusyn/Ukrainian" immigrants, particularly English speaking North Americans, who wish to learn more about their heritage.

As a result of the first partition of Poland in 1772, Galicia was occupied by Austria, eventually it wound up in the Austro-Hungarian Empire until the empire's disintegration in 1918.

Prior to it, and from 1918 until 1939, Galicia was administered by Poland. Currently, the territory of Lemkovyna finds itself in the south-eastern post-WW II Poland.
