    My paternal family boarded a train in Kostopol, Volhynia for Libau, Latvia. From there they sailed to Hull, England and followed the same route as described by Bill Remus.
    The women and children of my maternal family found their way to Hamburg, Germany, presumably by train from Ellinow, Volhynia.  From there they sailed to Grimsby, England and then by train to Liverpool and from there to Halifax.  I haven't been able to track the route of the menfolk of this family to England but they landed in Quebec City.  They came to Canada a year earlier than the women and children

  For the people who decided to leave Volhynia for Canada
  in 1890 what route would they have taken to get from the homes they
  were leaving to England?  Are there any stories told of this trek?
