Hi list!

This is a bit off topic, but can someone give me a brief history of why 
the Germans migrated to Volhynia or give me the names of some 
books/sources (in English) where I can read about it? I have discovered 
that both sets of my paternal grandparents either were born there or 
their parents were. I have no idea what this area is except that the 
borders changed a lot ( Poland/Russia/(Germany?)). It makes it very 
confusing for me to figure out what is going on. Also, I would just like 
to understand were they came from.

Thanks much,

Sharon Kitter
