I have just found this list, and am rather a novice of this area. 

In trying to trace information on my family, I am curious if there are 
any records that exist that would document land grants, ownership, etc., 
specifically of farms in Volhynia, specifically in Tuczyn and Berezolupy 

My great-grandparents immigrated to the U.S., specifically Michigan, in 
1908 from Volhynia, while my grandfather was an infant.  My grandfather 
and his older brother both passed away in the past year and I've never 
known their parents, so I've had relatively no one to ask for help.

In my searches, I've found that my great-grandparents were both born in 
Tuczyn Rowne, and I'm fairly certain that they were living there up to 
the time that they immigrated to the US.  One set of their parents died 
in Kartschemka, Russia, around 1921, and the other set were born around 
1846-1853 in Berezolupy Luck, Volhynia. The surnames I am looking for in 
particular are:  Schlender, Zindler, Naderschanske, Kraft, Steinke, 
Heidemann, Klemke, Schmit.

If you have any information that could be helpful in this search, I'd 
welcome it.
