A number of years ago I was acquainted with someone whose name was Moishe Golubchuk (I’m not positive of the spelling). He was from Western Canada, but lived in Toronto, Canada when I met him. Possible he is related, & maybe is named after Mojsech Francus, or named for the same person. Judith Rothman, Brooklyn
