Shortened text of the section. Full text in ukrainian version.
In a habitual movement, we divide the historiography of the question into a bibliographic, enthusiastic and critical direction (no one has considered the genealogical books as literary monuments).
For the bibliography the most important is the book by M. E. Bychkova [Bychkova M.E. Pedigree books of the 16th – 17th centuries as a historical source. – Moscow: Nauka, 1975, 215 p.].
Enthusiasts: R. V. Zotov, L. V. Voitovich.
Critical direction: S. B. Veselovsky, M. E. Bychkova.
