Hi
I don't know much about genealogy but have always been curious. Once when I told a polish professor what my maiden name was, he said, "Oh, an aristocratic name". And ever since then I've been curious. My father's grandparents came from Warsaw and settled I think in New Jersey but I can't be sure. But after reading all the posts about peasants adding the 'ski' suffix maybe that's what happened but I don't like to think so. I went all through school in the south with my name and it may sound funny but I'd sure like to think there's a chance there's royalty in my family because in my book my Grandfather was a King! Thanks for tips on websites to check out too.

There were two gentry (szlachta) lines amongst the Rychlińskis. For more info please contact me.

I have an extensive list of noble families from Galicia, now Malopolska.
It's all handwritten about a 100 years ago, so I can't put it here, but I can check if the last name is on the list for free.

Most of these names have extensive nobility court files from years 1887-1855 that I have access to.

For Rychlinski there are nobility court files of the following:

Rychlinska Agnieszka de Wiszniewskie
Rychlinskie de Franciszka v. Korbecka
Rychlinska Salomea
Rychlinski Stanislaw

Hello, i would be happy if anyone could help me with my surename. Keblaitis i do understand that it's lithuanian, (don't quite understand how to convert it back to how it should be written in polish) but my grandfather told me that it's old and comes from Poland or somewhere near Lithuania. Anything will help. Thanks!

Keblaitis

it does not resemble any modern Polish word of Slavic origin - the nearest thing I can think of is chełbać which means more or less to swing, rock or also wobble
