How can I research famliy members from the Volyn area (Ratno, Kovel, etc). that emigrated in the late 19th and early 20th Century to the US? #ukraine


My family tree does not go back any further than the US at the moment as I cannot track my relatives into their native lands, which were held by Russia, Prussia and Poland at various times. 
Not sure how I can research them.  We have Kempers, Millmans, Chaiets, Bluts, Zuckers, Pens and Jacobs in our line .  

Can someone help point me to where I might further the research?

Thank you,
Steve Millman
