JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen archives for Tuchin (Tyczyn,Tuchyn), Ukraine #general

Jim Gutterman

Both my pgf and pgm emigrated >from Tuchin to NYC at the turn of the
20th century. I have obtained a good deal of information about their
respective siblings who also emigrated, and I am now at the point
where I am beginning to research back into Europe, in particular to
ascertain the family makeup >from whence they came. In particular, I
know that each had a number of siblings who didn't remained back in
Russia and never made it out. I have identified >from jri-poland and
other sources several promising archives, a number of which are "part"
of the ukraine <>. Two of these are the
State Archives of Rivne Oblast and of Zhytomir Oblast. Before going
off and emailing or otherwise contacting these sources, I wanted to
check with other members as to advices, experiences, etc that they
have had with either the specific archives mentioned or just obtaining
records >from the Ukraine in general (ie contact them in english or no,
alternate non-governmental sources for Tuchin, level of assistance or
lack thereof that I might expect, etc.). Thank you.
