According to Auswanderung deutscher Bauern des Gostyniner Landes nach 
Wolhynien by Albert Breyer, the migration took place between 1855 and 
1885.  The peak period appears to be 1862-1874 for which he shows the 
German population of the Gabin parish dropping from 700 families to 551 or 
3318 souls to 2773.
