I decided today to look for a several-greats aunt (Blondina
Wagner, geb Gruenke) who, according to family tradition, left
Volhynia to go to Brazil, and later moved on to Uraguay.

that she was part of a very large party, all giving their last residence
as Schadura, Russland (near Volodarsk-Volinsky).
There were 111 Germans from Schadura, all on the ship "Buenos Aires",
leaving Hamburg on the 19th May 1886, heading for the port Sao Francisco
in Brazil, led by the preacher Wilhelm Lange.
With the help of friend google, I think I've found out where they
ended up, in a place called Bruederthal:
Has anyone previously come across this particular migration before?
Can anyone suggest sources for finding out about the general
history of Bruederthal, or the destiny of particular families in
