Russian historian Jastrebov placed the border of the ancient Serbia with the river Elbe and its tributary Saale to the west, including the area of the so-called North or Old Mark, Thuringia and Saxony to the south, the river Bober to the west as far as its confluence with the river Oder, then along the Oder to the confluence of the Warta, then follo wing the Warta to the east, north of Poznan and following a relatively straight line to the river Vistula, then along Vistula to the Gdansk Bay.

Many of these tribal names can be found in South Slavic lands as lastnames or toponymes:
Four big Slavic tribal groups: Bodrići, Ljutići, Lužičani and Pomorjani. The following tribes can be identified with the Bodrići: Polabljani, Vardi, Bitenci, Smolinac, Rarogi, Varni etc. Among others, the Lužičani included the tribes of Žarovani, Škudrići, Nišani, Glomači, Milčani, Trebovljani, Žarovnjani, Žitici, Suselci etc. The Ljutići included tribes of Sprevljani, Plonjani, Moračani, Zemčići, Lešići, Govoljani, Naletići, Doljani, Ukrani, Ratari, Rečani, Dolenci, Prekopjenci, Hižani and Ranjani. From the Pomorjani,  Kašubi, Slovinci and Liciki.
