Advanced Cyrillic for Genealogists and Historians

 Registration is closed for this event
Are you already comfortable reading printed or neatly written Ukrainian, but are stymied by the (shall we say) less-than-perfect cursive in early 20th century documents? We might be able to help!

UHEC archivist Michael Andrec will explicate handwriting samples from documents in the Center's Archives collections that range from the not-so-bad to the seriously challenging.

This is a reprise of the event from March 2020, but will be presented in a webinar format rather than as an interactive "Zoom meeting".

PREREQUISITES: To benefit from this talk, you should already know how to read "textbook" cursive Cyrillic and have a moderate level of reading comprehension in Ukrainian. All example documents will be in Ukrainian, but the workshop itself will be in English.
