Have you tried Google Maps?   
  I just tried, and - I find Kalisch well over 100 miles from  Besiekiery.. 
  (there could be other villages with the same name)
 Then more than 350 to the area of Volhynia (Ukraine) 
There are older maps from the 1930's (German usually) that are quite  
 Have you examined them?   One I use often:

my family resettled from the province of Kalisch  (specifically the village 
of Besiekiery) in 1872 to Korez, volhynia.   
1.  how far is it?
2.  what route would they have  taken?
3.  are the roads pretty much the same ones today as  then?
4.  what time of the year are they most likely have  travelled?
5.  how long would it have taken them traveling by horse  and wagon?
6.  did most people who resettled to these areas travel in  groups?  
7.  were there some wagon trains?
7.  has  anyone else researched these general kind travel in groups of 
questions?   Findings?  Written about  them?
