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.
