Since you are a SGGEE member you have access to all the quarterly Journals published by SGGEE since it's inception 8 years ago.
In particular, I would like to draw your attention to an excellent article (in 2 parts) that Jerry Frank contributed to the SGGEE Journal in the December 2001 and January 2002 issues. The article is entitled "Drang nach Osten" The German Migration to the East.
No doubt Jerry will provide you with additional insight when he has the opportunity, but the article referred to above will give you a very good start in your quest for migration information
In the 30 some odd Journals published to date, there are many more informative article to be found dealing with migration of Germans to the Poland and Volhynia. A list of contents can be found inside the front cover of each issue

You seem well informed of many historical things. And you made reference
that Catherine the Great was not responsible for German immigration to Russia
except for Volga Germans. Do you then know another reason? I am very
interested in understanding this. Can you recommend some reading?
Also have you any more information about resettlement issues due to WWII and
why these things happened?
I am trying to understand the movement of relatives from Wohlynia to Siberia
to Warthegau and finally to Germany and then to Canada. Also what was the
impulse that had these folks also come to "America" in the early 1900's (my
grandfather Ritz came for a couple of years and then went back).
I would be very greatful for any information or links to information that
you could supply.
