Thank you for the helpful responses to my questions as to location  of 
Sobotka and Szczepanow. I am trying to track the movements of our Grams 
family when they lived in Poland...according to research done by Ewald 
Wuschke the Andreas Grams family lived in Gramsdorf (Bukowiec), then 
Sobotka, Nowa Wies, then Szczepanow.  Andreas' son Matin Grams married in 
Szczepanow, his son August 'Wilhelm' Grams (our grt grandfather) moved with 
the family to Volhynia where he married Pauline Arndt in Zhitomir Parish in 
1866.  In the Odessa Library files and the SGGEE files their children are 
listed as being born in Tuczyn,Tutschin, Shitomir, Kamenka, Kutazowka, and 
Rovno...all in Volhynia?? I have found conflicting birthdates and birth 
places for many of the sixteen children between the two files which is very 
confusing.  Family story is that the Grams operated a woolen mill in the 
Rovno area and according to one of Wilhelm's daughter's birth record, it 
says her father was a Tuchmachermeister...master cloth maker. I had found 
information that said "Rivne, formarly known as Rovno, is this correct?
Again, many thanks,
