Dear All,

I'm searching for information regarding the surname Kotowicz. I've come across an entry in an old book and I'm wondering if anyone would be willing to translate it. It's on p.674 and can be found at:

http://books.google.co.uk/books?id=PrhBAAAAcAAJ&printsec=frontcover&source=gbs_ge_summary_r&cad=0#v=onepage&q=kotowicz&f=false

Any help would be very much appreciated and would help my research a great deal.

Dgenpol,

Kotowicz is from Polish kot- „cat” .

In 2002 there were 3984 individuals using the surname Kotowicz living in Poland. Detailed map of the surname distribution can be found here https://nazwiska-polskie.pl/Kotowicz .

In the old Poland there was a few noble families of Kotowicz:

Kotowicz coat of arms Korczak in Volyn and Lithuania, in 1671-1700, in Volyn in 1582, in Samogitia (Żmudź) in 1582

Translated from your document:

Thanks Aga! The Kotowicz family I'm researching lived in Lwow/Lemberg in the 19th century and the Volyn region is just above which is good news. I'll move my focus onto north-western Ukraine. Thanks for the info.
