Rodovid is a wonderful journal, the best or at the very
least one of the best of its kind published in the world.
It is also vastly superior to all its predecessors in Ukraine.
The contents of Rodovid are skilfully balanced: alongside
serious authoritative articles on cultural history, each
issue contains exciting meaty new findings. The presentation
of the journal is equally excellent and matches it contents.
In fact I cannot praise Rodovid enough and can only wish
it long life and continued success.

Without any financial support from academic
institutions, Rodovid not only has found its readers and
place in Ukrainian studies, but it successfully competes
with the best academic press publishing in Ukraine today.

In my opinion the journal Rodovid is
one of the best cultural publications in Ukraine. The journal's
work is extremely necessary to the process of the mergence
of Ukraine as a strong and stable European country.
Mykhailo Sytrota, Ukrainian
Rodovid continues the proud tradition
of such venerable journals as Kievskaia starina by publishing
a mix of contemporary field work, essays on scholars and
collections of the past, and analysis of data. It is a leader
in Ukrainian folklore and I cannot imagine the field without

When I turn the pages of the journal
Rodovid, I can not shake the feeling that I am touching
a valuable family albumn. Peering into the journal as if
into a face, I recognize the admirable ancestors of all
my people and I am filled with pride.

dramatist, novelist (Kyïv)
All elements of the publication are superb,
with excellent editorial control
and a selection of materials that range from issues little
known to new views
of established topics. Rodovid is proudly stepping into
the future and
promises to become a unique and exceptional publication,
encyclopedia of history with thoughtful, deep insights into

Rodovid . . . has opened a window on
Ukrainian culture and tradition that had
been shut to the world for many decades. Its very high quality
and its standards of narrative and presentation compare
favourably with the best Canadian and international journals
of that kind.
