FOREWORD

This web site is primarily looking at the family based on and around Roman, Alina, Andrzej and Marek. It encompasses their children and grandchildren. There is limited knowledge and information about the ancestors but what has been found is shown on this page and its links.

ROMAN'S RESEARCH

From his grandfather, Wasili Wolkow, Roman inherited the rudiments of a family tree depicting the Russian side of the family which goes back to Aleksander Patiomkin, the brother of Gregori, Katherine the Great's lover. Roman's interest in the families origin was kindled and he started research into the Polish side of the tree. With his untimely death in 1995 the research stopped but he left a legacy of information and photographs from which a consolidated family tree was compiled and from which these ancestry pages were prepared. It is certain that much knowledge and detail which had not been written down by him and is now lost for ever. Part of the inspiration for this Site comes from this loss. If the personal knowledge can be set down in writing and photographs it will survive in perpetuity.
