It is not known if Moscow Archives has any significant material about 
Volhynia.  We do know that:

- It is difficult to get information from that archive.  The American 
Historical Society for Germans from Russia as well as the LDS church 
have been trying for many years without success.

- We know that Volhynia was under the St. Petersburg Consistory of 
the Lutheran Church, not the Moscow Consistory, so those records are 
not in Moscow.  I don't know about Baptist or Catholic records for the region.

I believe that the American Historical Society of Germans from Russia 
( http://www.ahsgr.org ) which focuses on the Volga River region has 
made attempts to find records in Siberia but I don't know if they 
have been successful or if they have looked specifically at the 
Slawgrod Archive.
