The noble Blinstrubs family has been living in Lithuania for more than 460 years. During this long period, it almost disappeared several times due to wars, diseases and other reasons, but it’s history continues. History that has been hidden for more than a century in historical documents, has come into the light and reached the descendants of the family. The main task of our generation is that the memory of the noble Blinstrubs family do not sink into oblivion again. During the last meeting of the Blinstrubs family, we voted yes to proposal to build a memorial stone on the site of former Blinstrubiškiai (Viduklė-Paalsė) manor, which going to remind about our family a hundred or two hundred years later. It’s also going to be a common place for all Blinstrubs who will be able to bring their relatives or friends to the place and tell about Blinstrubs family history and people.
A team of family enthusiasts – Vincas Blinstrubas, a member of Raseiniai District Council, p. Juozas Kazimieras Blistrabas, Bronius and Adelė Blistrubiai with daughter Vaida and family genealogist and historian Šarūnas Blinstrubas is working to realize this project. Algimantas Ivancevičius, a farmer from Gintalai village of Varniai eldership, donated the stone to the family. The estimated cost of the project is about 1500-1600 euros, which includes crane and truck transportation to the stone workshop and to Blinstrubiškiai, text engraving, preparation of the ground and consecration of the monument. You can see in the attached visualization how the stone is going to look a like in Blinstrubiškiai. In order to realize this project, donation of funds is necessary.
