Among the family documents there was a photo of Komorowski’s grandfather and advertisements of the confectionery factory which was near Rokiškis. The former President of Poland also gave Lithuania drawings of Józef Perkowski who lived in Żmudź.

Komorowski’s parents Zygmunt Leon Komorowski and Jadwiga Komorowska are from Auksztota.
