When you say “A remote possibility, perhaps, is that he got into the French army during the Crimean War (1853-56) and was sent to Russia, and stayed” makes sense.
The first record of the family according to VPK database is a marriage in 1857. Seems to be Ludwig’s brother.
I should check the Crimean War archives. Any idea where to start, Dick?

It’s not at all clear why a German living in France would have left for Volhynia at mid-century. The Revolution of 1848 created internal turmoil in some places, but he would only have been 11 years old. Did his whole family leave with him? France was not a repressive state, so I doubt that one should refer to his leaving as an “escape” (unless he had broken the law). A remote possibility, perhaps, is that he got into the French army during the Crimean War (1853-56) and was sent to Russia, and stayed.

I'm looking for Ludwig Kommers place of birth. He was born in 1837 (according to an old family report he was born in France). He escape to Volhynia and married in 1863 to Auguste Weich. We never found his birth record in Volhynia/Poland or even in the Black Sea region. So, the fact he was born in France started to make sense. When the Family left Europe in 1897 they departed from Marseille. So, another link to France.
Any idea where to look for it?

I think the basic answer to your question is "no." At least I have never heard of such a migration of German-speakers from France to Volhynia. Your question, however, implies that YOU have heard of it. If this is true, it might help if you would tell us where you heard or read about this migration.

Hello dear friends,
Has someone already heard about German-speaking people escaping from France
to Volhynia after some war in the XIX century?
