Архіви #1 [Франківськ, Львів]

Багато мене запитують – “А як попасти в архіви? Чи важко там досліджувати? Яка там система?” і так далі. То ж я вирішив сформувати думки в детальній текстовій формі. Можливо комусь знадобиться.

Так як цей блог призначений для моїх генеалогічних досліджень, історичних та етимологічних пошуків а також ДНК досліджень, то це буде так би мовити #HowTo інструкція.

atDNA [86-8-6]

UPD: Latest article about similar information is atDNA #3 [ethnicity admixture]


In late 2014 (Dec-08) I received FTDNA results about my atDNA via “Family Finder” test.
Previously, in 2014 I made Y-DNA test, so I belong to paternal DNA lineage within haplogroup I2. More details here.

Here is short at-DNA results, based on FTDNA:

  • 86% – European,
  • 8% – Jewish/Ashkenazi,
  • 6% – Middle Eastern.


So what does this all mean?

Surnames and Locations

Step by step, I have lot of information about places, where LUNDIAK-s were born, grew up, evolved, migrated, worked, returned, temporary settled, buried. Based on yDNA/atDNA/mtDNA matches from GEDMATCH and FTDNA I have many inputs now. So, in this post I want to define some “correlation” between locations and surnames. Below list will be updated, as soon as I find some new location, which potential can be related to my ancestors.

small reward

More than 10 years of research of genealogy, etymology, DNA, families, surnames, languages, countries, customs and I have received small reward recently – feedback from person, whom my data helped to find a lost family information.

Martha Gadecki (Chacewicz, Lundziak)

“I was doing a Google search on my mother’s maiden name “Lundziak” when I came across the My Heritage site and saw a photo of my mother there.”

“I was so surprised to find this information and photos. It was almost a shock to see my Mom’s photo on the internet.”

“Thanks to you for all the helpful information and time you are devoting to this. Very much appreciated.”

“Your work is very impressive. If you find out any further info about either family line, I would be thankful to get it at your convenience. I can imagine how busy you must be – with work and so many projects.”

“I just had a chance to take a good look at the family tree with the inclusion of our family in it, and just want to thank you for all your work. It seems quite an undertaking. I’m still amazed and happy.”

Конкурс “У нас одне коріння”

Ура, таки недарма я займався 10 років цим.
Ось є прекрасний момент доробити роботу до якогось функціонального кроку:

Планую взяти участь у номінації «Мій рід»

Буду радий, якщо дійсно візьму чусасть, і все ж таки назбираю більше інформації по систематизації даних свого родоводу.

UPD: Участь не взяв, хоча документ готував, не вислав, бо зрозумів, що я забагато інформації маю6 і вона не входить у формат конкурсу.

Just want to begin

This blog is about my genealogy research, and mostly it’s related to surnames Lundiak (Lundyak, Loondyak) and Babij (Babiy, Babey, Babeyczuk). I plan to provide articles which represent my results, interesting finding or any genealogy-related content.

Main language of blog is English, because it’s universal, and will help me to spread information among many people. But also, I may post in Ukrainian language, only that content, which is related to local events.

Note: this blog initially was on Blogger platform, and this first post was in 2010, but then I moved to WordPress platform (2014).
