Abstract

The article investigates the history of Ivashchenko family from
the village of Letski (Pereyaslav-Khmelnytskyi district of Kiev
region) in the 17th and 21st centuries.
The lawful past of the Ivaschenko family reflects one of the
typical life strategies of the Ukrainian peasant family of Cossack
descent from Central Ukraine. The founders of the family affirmed
their knighthood, having served several generations in the ranks of the Zaporozhian Army. Their descendants in the 17th and 19th
centuries managed to preserve personal freedom and continued to
call themselves proudly Cossacks. The tribe existed and developed
successfully through tireless labor on earth and large families,
which became the main guarantee of the continuation of the family.
The scientific novelty of the research is that at the moment no
detailed analysis of the history of the Cossack family of Ivashchenko
from the village was conducted. These materials were not the
subject of independent study, therefore the analysis of this problem
will help to analyze the contribution of the family to the thorny
ethnographic and development of the Ukrainian nation.
The Ivashchenko is a family of Cossack descent with a long
history. The earliest news about the existence of the genus dates
back to the time of Khmelnytskyi, when, during the National
Liberation War of 1648-1657, under the leadership of Bogdan
Khmelnytskiy, an independent Cossack state emerged. The name
«Ivashchenko» can be found in the register of the Zaporozhian Army
in 1649 among the Cossacks of the Pereiaslav regiment. Obviously
since then, representatives of this glorious Cossack family lived from
generation to generation in the village. Letsky was the Cossack
region and even the legends about the founding of the village,
connected with the person of the Cossack elder of Letsyk, who,
received a land plot near the village of Brovarka and founded a
farm. The appearance of the village dates back to the end of the
16th and early 17th centuries, although this territory was inhabited
during the times of Kievan Rus.
