A word from the creater of the project


For those interested I offer the list of Belarusian nobility names, which was originally published in "Spadčyna" ("Heritage") magazine #2, 1995 (Uładysłaŭ Krukoŭski "Srebnaja strała ŭ čyrvonym poli" - "A Silver Arrow In Red Field"). H. Sienkiewicz. "The Deluge", 1885. Kmicic's company. The history of the Lyczkowski (way of writing versions: Łyčkoŭski - Лычкоўскі - Lychkouski - Łyczkowski - Lyčkovskis - Личковський - Lytschkowski - Лычковский - Lychkovskiy ) family has much in common with those of other Belarusian szlachta (noble) families. So if you find your own family name in the list, maybe you will also reveal in yourself a strong desire and need to know history of your ancestors. If it happens, I will be convinced that my work was useful indeed.

This project is fully amateur, niether academic nor systematic whatsoever, and I ask all visitors to take it into account while evaluating the content of the site. But I will be very pleased to hear visitors' crititism, opinions, propositions, and of course new unique information.

Józef Chełmoński. "The prayer before a battle (Racławice)", 1906 For generous assistance in creation of this project I'd like to thank Mariusz Majek (Poland) - for his help in preparing Polish version of the project, and Uładysłaŭ Viaroŭkin-Šaluta (Belarus) - for providing valuable information concerning genealogy of the Lyczkowskis. I also wish to express my sincere appreciation to all staff of the National Historical Archives of Belarus - without their help I would have taken much longer time and incomparably more efforts to run the project to its present point. My deep thanks to all who found some time and brought his share to this work. This site is by all means the result of your cooperation. Thank You!

We appreciate and welcome any form of Your sponsorship to this project. If You'd like to support our efforts, please contact site administrator.
