I think you should consider that Walymen was not a village at all,  
but the transcriber's interpretation of what they were told by your  

The list was probably not written by your grandfather, so If the  
transcriber spoke a different native language than your grandfather,  
the spelling could be way off from the village your ancestor was  
actually referring to.

Or maybe what grandpa really said was Volhynia, and he didn't provide  
any village name.
