Chuchin


Does anyone know if F.G. Chuchin had a brother? I'm looking at a January 1924 letter sent by A.G. Chuchin from the Commission for Vouchers and Philately...

Ivo, this site has info (17 hits if you search чучин) about his family including wife, son, grandson and a younger brother Ivan. It also says that F.G. came from a non-landowning peasant family. Such families tended to be big. But, unfortunately, I find no mention of A.G. Chuchin there. http://www.booksite.ru/fulltext/1vo/log/da/9.htm

Thanks, Nik. My Russian friends assure me there was a sister called Fanya (who was Alexander Epstein mathematics teacher in high school!) as well as the brother Igor, with the existence of an A.G. Chuchin (or possibly Chuchina) still unresolved.

I don't mean to be rude but are you sure it is A.G. and not F.G., he was after all Head of the Commission for Vouchers and Philately and did in it's early days sign philatelic export covers personally. Later his signature was replaced with a stamped signature and then other members of the staff.
Would you please post a scan of the cover and signature.

My Russian may be wobbly as hell but I think I might just manage to spot the difference between an F and an A. And it's not a signature: see original post: it's a letter sent BY A.G. Chuchin.

F(yodor)G. Chuchin had a brother Ivan (Vanya), i.e. I.G. Chuchin and a sister Faina (Faya), i.e. F.G. Chuchina (for some time Gutman). I never heard about A.G. Chuchin

Yeah, it's a mystery. The sender literally writes: "Ot: A.G. Chuchina..." and I'm not even sure if the "Chuchina" is the genitive case (because of "Ot") or the nominative case, so brother OR sister. The handwriting looks feminine to my untrained eye.

It is genitive case of the male surname Chuchin. If female, then "ot Chuchinoy".
