The Slavic Roots Project became official in October of 2016. Our purpose is to be an umbrella group and resource hub to the various projects supporting specific slavic peoples and to support smaller Slavic groups that might find it challenging establishing their own project space. Also - we aim to help those new to research in countries where Slavs predominate or who may not know much about their Slavic origins.
To join the group, please post a new answer here on this G2G thread, and we'll be sure to issue you a project badge. Also, check out our project page for instructions on joining our mailing list. You'll want to check our our sub-projects if you haven't already. And if one doesn't yet exist that you think fits, we are happy to support you in developing it. Don't forget to follow Slavic Roots among your g2g tags!
Here's our project page:
Also -- if you are already a member of one of the sub-projects and I've neglected to give you a badge (and you want one) -- do let me know, here or via a direct message.
Here's a general grouping of Slavic peoples:
* West Slavs: Czechs, Poles, Slovaks, Silesians, Moravians, Kashubians
* East Slavs: Belarusians. Russians, Ukrainians
* South Slavs: Bosniaks, Croats, Macedonians, Montenegrins, Serbs, Slovenes and Bulgarians
Who should join? Anyone with any degree of Slavic heritage is welcome, as well as anyone interested in research on profiles with Slavic relevance, or in supporting such research.
