The surname Plewako/Plewaka recorded from the second half of the 16th century spread widely over 500 years in the area of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania (Belarus & Lithuania), Poland (over 100 living persons), Ukraine (about 1000 living persons), Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and after World War II - all over the world. Study in the Plewako Y-DNA Project have characterized so far the 6 strains Plewako Y-DNA, including the extensively characterized genetically a noble strain of the descendants of Jaroslaw Plewaka. Jaroslaw (Jarosz) with son Stanislaw (Stanko or Staszko) has been noticed at 1528 year in the mobilisation of armed forces of Grand Duchy of Lithuania. Mikolaj Stanisławowicz Plewaka, grandson of Jaroslaw, was noted during the next great mobilization of armed forces of Grand Duchy of Lithuania at 1567 year, and in 1582 he was listed as a witness in Minsk's court records, and still in 1606, when he selling his hereditary property Krzywicze Małe.
