Hello everyone!
My family is searching for any info about our ancestor for many years.
Here's what we know so far:
Bazylij Kułajewicz (polish spelling) was allegedly officer of White Army / Movement, he married Irena Urbańska in Rostov On Don, propably in 1920 or 1921. He dissapeared (died?) before his son Stefan, my grandfather, was born (10.08.1922 on official record, but my grandfather claims til' death that it was fake birth date, and he was born in 1921).
It is stated in my grandfathers marriage documents that Bazylij was born in 1882 in Rostov but it was never confirmed by any other source.
Irena Kułajewicz (Urbańska) moved to Vilnus and died in 1925. All people with this surname in Poland are my family, there is 8 of us.
I will be grateful for any informations or guidance.

Hi,
There are 3 records with the last name of “Кулевич” (Kulevich/Koulevich) in the “Members of the White movement” database. It’s the closest match that I was able to find. The name Vasily (which corresponds to Basil) is listed twice and in one case 1883 is mentioned as a birth year. Obviously, nothing says for sure that it’s the person you are looking for. Could be a coincidence. In addition, this database was compiled from various sources some of which are not too reliable (newspaper articles).

Кулевич Василий Иосифович, р. 27 июля 1883. В эмиграции во Франции. Ум. 28 мая 1951. /177/
Кулевич Василий. Урядник. В Русской Западной армии. На 1919 в лагерях Германии, поступил в белорусскую армию. /659/
Кулевич. Коллежский советник. В Русской Западной армии. В эмиграции в Германии. /141/

Thank you for your response. Kulevich (Kulewicz in PL) and Koulevich (Kołewicz) are similar surnames, but not the same as Kułajewicz. According to my grandfather's aunt, who raised him afters his mother died, Kułajewicz was exact polish spelling of Basil's (Vasily is great idea, thank you) surname. The closest thing I found was couple people with Kulaevich surname on yandex.

True, but in the past non-Russian (or even Russian) last names could have been written in different ways. For example, I recently searched for a particular Radziszewski and found out that the same person was listed as Радзишевский (Radzishevsky) or Радишевский (Radishevsky) in various books and documents. A lot of info in the “White movement” database was taken from obituaries in foreign newspapers and magazines. Imagine a person with a Polish last name that was previously Russified emigrated to France through a third country and finally got French passport with local spelling. His name could go through several transformations and who knows which version will appear in a newspaper article. So there is a possibility that Kulaevich could have been changed to a simpler Kulevich.

That is true and more that posible, don't even ask how many times somebody written my surname in incorrect way :)
Is there any posibility to find The Man by his wife / wife's family then? Wife of Basil / Vasily was a polish descent from Warsaw and she lived in Rostov with her parents (Dominik i Felicja Urbański) and 2 sisters (also with Urbański surname).
I tried to find any documents in catholic church in Rostov (my grandfather was baptised as catholic there) but they stated that they don't have any archives predating 1990's.
