They don't seem to be a small szlachta as my mother's ancestors.
I wrote only that I can hardly imagine Clan admission of smal families of some 1-2 wolokas

north east Poland

Wasn't that Great Duchy of Lithuania before 17 century? I write about Suwalki

I mentioned Suwalki because it was the nearest town on map, but my ansestors fortune was definately in Great Duchy of Lithuania

Shall you mention exact names of gmins? That is very interesting. I payed much attention to Suwalki powiat and neighbouring lands. My grandgrandmother was born in Grodno

There was a body called Senate of Russian Empire. Within it there was a Department of Geroldia ( Департамент Герольдии). Poles and Lithuanians adressed copies of burth rates and documents on property in past to confirm nobility. You may learn mani details from that documents.

First consult Seweryn Uruski if your surnames are before letter R

Who could help me with some information about Poles deported to Sibirea after the January Rebellion of 1863? Is there any database with the names (in Poland or Russia)?

Thanks for your help!

One can conquer Poland, but never submit the will of the people...

Witek I understand why you say our uprising is not worth it as so much was lost for poland. But I disagree with you when you say the uprising was not worth it. Our uprising was crushed and our people were killed, but these soldiers completed their honourable duty to our country. Think about what would have happened if there was no uprising. The soviets would have ma rched in and they would claim to the world that armia krajowa collaborated with the Germans. Then they would effectively stomp out all resistance.without a fight at all and we.would have.no help. While this happened.to us any.way, and with great loss of life, the uprising would remind poles later on, even under soviet propaganda, that another free poland existed. Poles looked up to these freedom fighters and heroes in some of the hardest times of our history. Poland lost that fight, but we lost it fighting, not hiding and waiting for the.next set of occupiers. You may disagree with me and that is okay. The uprising was tragic, but not in vain.
