House of Kozlanowski

In 1629 King of Poland and Grand Duke of Lithuania Sigismund Vasa issued a privilege that charged him with a somewhat unusual, especially considered from the 21st-century perspective, obligation of guarding a part of the state archive, the Lithuanian Metrica.

This privilege is the earliest of its kind, but several others were issued soon after. In December 1636, Gregory Kozlanowski (Didžioji Street 11) was charged with guarding the archive.
