Dear Paola,

According to this post on Ancestry, "Volinsky =olhynia. Prior to WW I,
this was a province wholly within Russia. Between 1921 and WW II, it was
split in half with the west being in Poland and the east remaining in
Russia. Today it is wholly in Ukraine."

And on Rootsweb, there is this comment: "Gubernia" in tsarist Russia was a
very large administrative unit, originally with population of about 200 000
to 300 000 or 400 000. That person came across [from] 'Volynska Gubernia',
nowadays Volhynian Oblast in Ukraine."

In 1915, there is mention of a Jewish relief committee..." The Kieff
committee extends its activities to the governments of Kieff,
Podolia and Volhynia."

I hope that is helpful.

Dear All

In a document date 1904 there is an interesting note next to my
gggrandfather name.
It says (translated >from Russian by a professional researcher as) ">from the
Committe of Volinski Colonist settlers".
Does anyone know about these committes?………………...

Best regards.
