ABSTRACT
The paper is based on the analysis of the oral ethnic history materials of the Roma people. The author considers social and cultural dynamics of the Lovary Roma, ethnic and social processes related to their integration into Russian society in the late 19th and the 20th centuries. The archive documents (photos included) are used to specify routes and time of their migration from Hungary to Russia via the territories of Poland, Ukraine, and Belarus. The field data of the oral ethnic and cultural history of the Russian Lovary are presented in the Addendum.
