In the late 1800's, my grandmother's parents (along
with other families) emmigrated to the US from
Volhynia. They settled in southwestern Michigan
(Benton Harbor and surrounding areas). I am having
some difficulty in finding their arrival information
(ship, port, etc.) and what families actually came
Following are some family names of emmigrants:
Benke/Behnke Hafer/Haffer Villwock Schroeder
Charlotte Adeline Hafer
Henrietta Frederike Willhelmine Villwock
Place names associated with these emmigrants include:
Tutschin, Roebuc District, Shitomir Parish, Volhynia
I have a web site that gives what our family knows
about these emmigrants at:
I would appreciate any information that you could
share and/or leads and research suggestions.
