Tuchin/Torchin #ukraine


k zeff
 

I am researching the family of my maternal grandfather, BenTzion Forman.
On his declaration of intent to become a naturalized US citizen, he
listed his home town as Torchin. I believe this is meant to be Tuchin,
which is 10-12 miles northeast of Rovno/Rivne.

Does anyone know of a source for vital records for Tuchin? Even though
I am not certain of my grandfather's birth year or even his original
name, I believe that I could recognize possible family members if I
could access births, deaths, and marriages.

Limited records exist for Tuchin. The Rovno Regional State Archives holds
copies of the revision lists (Fond 27, Opis 3) for the 7th through 10th
revisions (1815 - 1857) and this is the best overall resource for that
period. There are miscellaneous records in the State Archive of Zhitomir
Oblast (Fond 118) but it is hit or miss. Unfortunately, I'm not aware of any
existing B/M/D records, which leaves a big gap in useful records >from the
1860's up to WWI.

Make sure it is really Tuchin (Polish spelling Tuczyn) you want, as there is
a separate town called Torchin in the former Volin Gub., about 50-60 miles W
of Tuchin.

Keith Zeff and Joy Waters expressed interest in vital records of
Tuchin/Torchin. The Kremenets Shtetl CO-OP, affiliated with Jewish
Records Indexing-Poland (JRI-Poland), is translating and indexing the
vital records of Kremenets. One of the datapoints in the vital records
is the registration town of the people listed. The town of Tuchin shows
up in 103 entries in our "Indexed Concordance of Personal Names and Town
Names". Note that this is TUCHIN, not TORCHIN. TAs David Brill
observed, these are two different towns. You can access the Concordance
on our website,
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Kremenets/web-pages/index.html.

We maintain an e-mail distribution list of people who are interested in
the towns of the Kremenets District. We send out only a few messages
each year to update our "members" about progress on our projects. We do
not disclose e-mail addresses outside of our group. Please let me know
if you would like to be added to the list.
