There is a very powerful possibiltiy to find German locations in Germany of all times and also of Volhynia.
The link is http://gov.genealogy.net/ It is the Genealogische Orts-Verzeichnis short (GOV) with coordinates and links to Google Earth and other maps. It tries to show the administrative organistion during the time.
Another possibility is "Kartenmeister" in English: http://www.kartenmeister.com/preview/databaseuwe.asp
That one is good in finding the Kreise (counties) and Provinzen (states) of about 1905 thus before WW I. It has also coordinates but no link to maps.
You will still need good maps for Poland: the best I found are on http://www.mapywig.org/viewpage.php?page_id=7
They are of best quality and thus pretty big.
