Cyrillic Russian Alphabet Workshop – June

June 19, 2019 @ 5:45 pm - 7:45 pm


внимание !!
Attention Genealogists!!


Many researchers are dismayed when they realize that some of the records they need to research their families are in Russian. Some people give up at this point thinking that they can never master a non-Roman alphabet. But fear not! We are having an activity to teach you to conquer your fear and get you reading the records in no time.

To make you more comfortable with your “new” alphabet, we are offering a “hands on” interactive workshop in which you will learn to recognize and write all the letter symbols in the Cyrillic alphabet as well as know what sounds each letter represents. We will also talk about the concept of transliteration — the process of changing words from one alphabet to another. Emphasis will be placed on personal names and place names.

The workshop will be held on June 19, 2019 from 5:45-7:45 p.m. at the Berlin-Peck Memorial Library, 234 Kensington Road, Berlin, CT.  There is no charge for this activity.  Pre-registration is required. To register please email Diane Szepanski at Szepanski3@cox.net.
