Russian-speaking Communities in Oregon

Professor Tatiana Osipovich (Lewis & Cark) has produced a most fantastic web page about stories from people involved in the Russian-Speaking Communities in Oregon. I was glad to be of help to Tatiana in introducing her to the Russian Old Believer community in Woodburn, and also introducing one of her students (Martin) to Pastor Ben Shevchenko of the Russian Church in Hubbard. GREAT JOB!!
Tatiana: "Thanks to my students Martin Dorciak, Maria Egorenko, Elise Loughran, Anna McClain, and Katherine Palomares, a new most interesting page has been added to my site 'Russian-speaking communities in Oregon!' This page is devoted to nine personal stories of immigration. Thanks to all participants of this wonderful summer project!"
