[Ger-Poland-Volhynia] Wilhuft, Russia

It would appear that the genealogy.com information is an 
extraction.  You should go to the original source to figure out what 
the real place names are.  If the best they could do for Luck (= 
Lutzk) is Suzke, then I am sure that "Wilhuft" is spelled just as 
badly or worse.

A need to offer a word of caution regarding the Jadwinin place name.

In the Wladimir Wolhynsk Parish (and about 16 km east of that town) 
is the village of Jadwigow.  I strongly SUSPECT that this is your 
Jadwinin.  However, I have no map that shows it with that spelling 
nor do I have one that shows a Jadwinin anywhere in that region with 
that spelling.  Even the Kurt Luck map (referenced in another 
posting) shows this village as Jadwigow.

There is a Jadwinin / Jadwonin south of Ostrog but this would not be 
anywhere near a Wlodzimierz (Vladimir) place or parish.

There is also another town (not a parish) some distance north of 
Rowno specifically called Wlodzimierz.  I browsed my maps of that 
region and could not find a Jadwinin there.
