Hello everyone. First time. 

I have hit a dead end in my family research. By great great grandfather, August Massa came to Canada from Volhynia in 1896. His birthday is believed to be in 1857  Traveling with him was his wife, Amelie (Emily, Emelia, 1861?) and their son Frederick. Her maiden name was Hoffmann and her parents were (unconfirmed) Alexander and Julianne (née Baumann). I cannot find any other link to relatives there. I don't have any record of siblings or parents. I believe they were from the Rozyszcze parish. I found a Jacob Massa from Galicia who bears an incredible resemblance to my grandfather but no way to link the two families.   

I'm new at this and don't know where to start.   Any help would be great.  

Thank you, 

Steve Massey
