Summary/Abstract: The work showcases the promotion of Romanian lineage - Nicolae Milescu Spătarul (1636-1708) as ancestor of scientist Ilia Ilici Mecinikov (1845-1916), Nobel Laureate (1908). A great figure in world science and bio-medicine, the scientist - creator of two new modern sciences (immunology and gerontology) – is claimed and honoured by four nations: Israeli, French, Russian and Ukrainian. Despite his known Romanian descent on his paternal side – biographically consecrated by his wife Olga Mecinikov – Romania has pushed him into oblivion, by not promoting this historical truth and reality to all. In our country, Prof. Dr. doc. Ilie Th. Riga (1908-1977) publishes in 1930, in the Romanian magazine, Natura (Nature), Originea românească a lui Metchnikoff (Metchnikoff’s Romanian origins). In the 2007-2011 period, two of the authors of the work continuously publish, in the country and abroad, thus creating Dosarul ascendenţei româneşti al lui Mecinikov (Mecinikov’s file on his Romanian lineage), for the global informational civilization. They published their works in printed version: in scientific magazines (2007, 2011), in their own monograph Medicina anti-îmbătrânire şi ştiinţele longevităţii (Anti-aging Medicine and Longevity Sciences), (2007), in newspapers Ziua USA (The Day - USA), (2008) and Clipa. Magazinul Actualităţii Culturale Româneşti (The Moment. The Romanian Cultural Current Affairs Magazine), (2011), in Enciclopedia medicală Românească (Encyclopaedia of Romanian Medicine), (2009) and also on webpages (the online era): www.DacoRomanica.ro (2010), www.revista-studii-uvvg.ro (2011), www.ziuausa.com (2008), www.revistaclipa.com (2011), taken over by other internet websites.
