To Armenians, Kuty on the Cheremosh River is one of the most important places on the map of the historical Polish lands. Its population is now the subject of a website:, which is a genealogical database of those who have lived in Kuty that spans more than two centuries from the town’s foundation in 1715 until the forced exodus of a part of the population after 1945. The website now contains a network of approximately two thousand genealogical profiles. With a photograph where possible, each provides the date of birth, profession, religious affiliation, family relationships, changes of place of residence or dwelling, circumstances of death, and place of burial of the person concerned. The biographs are accompanied by unique photographs and excerpts of archive documents from public and private holdings.

For example: Kajetan Agopsowicz b.1879 is addressed to descendants of Kutians who wish to learn more about their family, to share information about them and, perhaps, to locate more distant relatives. The project will be of interest to anyone curious about the social history of Pokucie.

The site is the creation of its editor, Dr Franciszek Wasyl, who is a fellow at the Research Centre for Armenian Culture in Poland, and it is based on the results of his extensive, long-term archival research. You are cordially invited to visit
