I also forgot to mention but I am sure you already know, Elena and Aleksander Brochocki were the parents of Zofia Illinska. адказаць
On this trip would you be willing to visit Basino (about 20 mins away from Vieraskava) on behalf of the O'Rourke family? I believe this village is connected to the Brochocki family too since Elena O'Rourke, wife of Aleksander Brochocki, was likely born here. There is not much information on this village available on the internet, let alone this website. If you decide to go please upload any photos or information you come accross!
I am delighted to hear that your family will be travelling to Belarus. I wish very much to travel there one day and see it for myself. I hope you have a wonderful time!
Brochocki Family from the UK, USA and Canada will be visiting in June 2017. Anyone with knowledge of the family is requested to contact us. адказаць
The history of this family and Zofia Illinska's eventual return visit to the estate at Moryn is represented in the novel The Bronski House by Philip Marsden. He was a friend of Zofia's.
In the book, the Brochocki name is changed to Bronski.
