Hello Carole

I have no idea what "Londska Zirda" means.
we can locate the place Colonia OLGIN, especially because there is
connection to the name HENKEL.
First there is a handmade plan of OLGIN and the colonies in the
neighbourhood. You'll find it here:

Next you can identify the place OLGIN in relation to other places in Volynia
on this map:


down on the left side, east of HOROCHOW ! (Enlarge the map !)

And: on the third map you'll find old and new colony Olgin on this map more


You find Olgin on upper edge of the map under numerals 16 and 20 (edge of
map) !

> I have found on an immigrant list at Grosse-Ile my grandfather's sister,
Sofia Ruchotzka (sister of Ludwig Henkel) and her husband Alexander.   It
lists their place of origin as Londska Zirda, Colonia Olgin, Russie.  I know
they came from Volhynia to Canada.  Can anyone translate this place for me?
