1923 Polish Business Directory
for Tuchin (and Nearby Villages)

Following is a list of 303 names taken from the 1923 business directory for Wojewodztwo Wolynskie (Volhynia Province). The type of business and its location (Tuchin proper or nearby village) is listed after each name. The original directory is in both Polish and French; occupational names have been translated from the French. Surnames are given in their Polish spellings exactly as they appear in the directory. For those unfamiliar with Polish spellings, just follow these rules of pronunciation:
Polish C is pronounced like English TZ.
Polish CZ is pronounced like English CH.
Polish J is pronounced like English I.
Polish SZ is pronounced like English SH.
Polish W is pronounced like English V.
Thus, the name spelled "Kac" in Polish is equivalent to the English "Katz." Similarly, "Szmulowicz" would be written "Shmulovich" in English.
The business directory lists both Jews and non-Jews. The list of names has been reproduced in its entirety with no attempt made to ascertain whether individuals were Jewish, Polish, Ukrainian, German, etc. Nevertheless, the preponderance of identifiably Jewish surnames in this list suggests that the large majority of business owners in Tuchin were Jewish. Some local industries (such as the manufacture of draperies) seem to have been exclusively Jewish, or nearly so. But it is also clear that Jews were represented in nearly all areas of economic life in Tuchin.
Tanning, drapery manufacturing, milling, and commerce in grain were among the important industries in Tuchin in 1923. The most popular type of business (largest number of entries) was food (36 entries), followed by grains (26 entries) and shoemakers (17 entries).
Note - The directory includes listings for businesses in certain villages that, though outside of Tuchin itself, were part of the official Tuchin community. The included villages are: Amelin, Czeslawin, Jadzin, Kryniczka, Lucynow, Maciejowka, Marjanowka, Moszczany, Sobowka, Woronow and Zelanka. For the locations of these villages, see the map. The majority of the village businesses (13 out of 24) were windmills. The business directory also lists the names of wlasciciele ziemscy, the Polish landlords who owned large estates.
