A bare bones history is avlb on line
plus there are a number of links to other bits of history of the area 
like this about the immigration of Germans FROM Wolhynia in 1939-49
Any history text I have seen in English is, unfortunately, pretty short on details.

Hello all,

I'd love to learn as much as possible about the history of Volhynia beginning approximately 1875 to 1910. My grandparents lived in Volhynia during that time and had 6 children there before migrating to America in 1909. Can anyone please recommend a good book, in English, for understanding the history, culture, and/or political and religious factors that influenced settlers into Volhynia as well as the mass exodus to North America.

Thanks in advance,
