Greetings all! I am seeking information on the Wankowicz family who lived in the Minsk area. Some of the estates I've heard mentioned were Wieprzata, Antochata and Kozlewczyzna.
My great-grandfather was named Wincenty Kajetan Wankowicz (b. 1843), son of Kazimierz Wankowicz and Katarzyna (unknown last name). He was born on Wieprzata. I know of other Wankowicz's in the area at that time as well -- Jozef Wankowicz, Walenty Wankowicz, Anna Wankowicz Lachowicz, Melchior Wankowicz (yes, I know he's a famous Polish author, but I have NO idea if he's a relative), and I don't know how (or if) any of the others mentioned are relations of mine. I have hit a brick wall, and if anyone can show me how to get over, under or through this brick wall, I would be very appreciative! Thank you in advance for any direction you can give me.
