The oldest written Wojciulewicz records were found at Turgiele, date from the 17th century, and are in Polish, the state language of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. The family (at that time bojary, bajorai, landlords) for centuries lived and had their lands in the border region between actual Lithuania and Belarus (Wilno, Turgiele, Bojary, Giemzy, Sjostaki etc). Over the centuries, the many dialects and languages used in the region created multiple spellings for the family name : Wojciulewicz, Wojciulewitsch, Wojtulewicz, Wojtalewicz, Wojtalowicz, Voiciulevic, Vaiciulevic, Vaiciulevicius, ... .

Part of our ancestors were from the Chodkiewicz family. This family was of major importance in Polish-Lithuanian history.

It was planned to be a large event, a hybrid of a mystery play and an opera.  ... .  But life itself authored a different ending : Krzysztof died on 13th March 1996."  (Z.Preisner)
