My Family Tree Details
Bernie Edwin Anthony Beleskey was born Nov. 27th 1941 in Barrie Ontario, Canada.
The Family Tree name "Beliski" of our ancestors now dates back to 1414 in Lithuania. Our ancestors also came from Lithuania then to Prussia and then to Poland. the from Germany they arrived in Canada and United States, in the late 19th century
Our Family Name History:
As you may or may not know the Beleskey/Beliski's are of Lithuanian decent, polish heritage and traditions. The narrative obtained from the "The Historical Research Center" describes the following historical information.
The Lithuanians may have settled along the Neman (Nemanus) as early as 1500 B.C. In the 13th cent., to protect themselves against the Livonian and Teutonic knights, they formed a strong, unified state which, by absorbing neighboring Russian principalities, became one of the largest in medieval Europe. Between 1386 and 1569, Lithuania gradually merged with Poland. In 1795 it came under Russian control. Independence was declared in 1918, but Poland held Vilnius from 1920 to 1939.
Thus the first bearer of the surname Beleskey/Beliski was someone who was identified by the members of his community as "one who hailed from Beles". In some cases, this name may also have originated from the estate of the family, in which instance, it can be interpreted "the lord of Beles".
The surname is also record as Belewicz and Bielewski. Etymologically the loponym derives from the Slavic term "biel", meaning "white". After the union of Horodla in 1413, when Lithuania and Poland united, many members of the Lithuanian aristocracy adopted the polish form of their surnames and indeed Lithuanian society was to become completely Polonized. Indeed, the variant form of Beliski was borne by a noble Lithuanian family, which was a sept of the great clan Mogila.
The ancestral seal of this house was located in the city of Zmudz, where their existence was documented in 1840. Zmudz, a Russian diocese, also called Telshi (Telshe), including the part of Lithuania lying on the Baltic; this Lithuanian district, also named Schmudien (Polish, Zmudz) or Schamaiten (Lithuanian, Zemaitis), was conquered about 1380 by the Teutonic Knights, and ceded to Poland in 1411 by the first Treaty of Thorn after the defeat of Tannenberg. The surname of Beliski was of the family which was a sept (family) of the clan of Sreniawa.
