The SGGEE website provides a hyperlink to Antonowka records  1868-1904 
under Wladimir-Wolhynsk.  Deaths, births, and marriages are  all found in a 
single set of AGAD scans.  While searching for an event that  took place in 
western Volhynia, I came across the death record of my  great-great-grandfather 
August Kujat and several other records pertinent to my  family.  The death 
records contain numerous references to people born in  Antonowka in the Rowno 
district.  Much of my family is known to have lived  in places like Kurhany 
near Antonowka, which lies northeast of Rowno and west of  Berezno.  So if 
your ancestors lived there at the time of these records,  you may want to 
check them out.  Who knows, we may be related.
The records are in German and the handwriting is worse than mine.  One  
record peripheral to my family is already in one SGGEE database, so I suppose  
the Antonowka records are church records and the other record is a civil 
record  from Zhitomir.  Most of the records are not in our databases so far as 
I  have been able to tell.
