RE: [Hostow_Galicia_Village] Andrzejczuk ???? Jaciuk and Yaciuk
I know you are aware that the surnames you are researching “Andrzejczuk/Andrejciuk/Andrzejciuk and Jaciuk/JaciukYachuk etc and other spellings were not unique to the Tlumacz area. In fact there were Jaciuk’s that resided prior to both wars within the boundaries of current day Poland – eg Lublin and Siedlce area.
Within my family there were Andrzejczuk’s that settled in Canada post WWII. However, this does not match you time period, and you also made mention of Povit Borshciw. The latter may be the same location as Borszczow (dot above the second o) when under Polish rule - you may find link D below useful. You will see there are 2 administration districts separating Tlumacz and Borszczow.
I have included a few useful sites below – you may already be aware of these

Subject: [Hostow_Galicia_Village] Andrzejczuk ????
My Great Grandfather (Andrew) came to Canada between 1902 - 1906 from
Selo Nowashiwka, Povit Borshciw, Province of Galicia , Ukraine ,
Austria . He cames with his brothers; Jacob, Nykola, Michael, Paul and
Wasyl. They settled in Pine River , Manitoba area. He left behind two
sisters; Michalina and Marenka; both married and had families. I know
that they changed the spelling of the last name to Andreychuk and
Andrechuk. If anyone is related to these people or knows anything
about them or the families please let me know. Thank you
