Emigration from the territory of Slovakia

The ambition of the Museum of Emigration from Slovakia to North America – Kasigarda is to map the activities of our compatriots in North America. The subject of interest are mainly Slovak and Ruthenian associations in North America.

The pride of our Museum is the mapping of Slovak and Ruthenian churches in North America. Our big project, in which we place great hopes, is the Interactive Map of Emigration from Slovakia to North America. Here we plan to capture every single emigrant through a questionnaire, the result of which will be a database presented on an interactive map.

The Kasigard Museum also plans to map the cultural and educational activities of our compatriots. A database of Slovak and Ruthenian newspapers and magazines in North America will be the first to be created.
