Wandering Volhynians is a quarterly publication dedicated to serving the genealogical, historical and heritage interests of descendants of Germans who migrated to or through Congress Poland and Volhynia. Regular features include a surname data base, a query column, obituary listings, and a problem corner. Interspersed with these regular features are maps, book reports, translations of old German material, reports on research and tourist trips to east Europe, personal successes, documents, pedigrees, photographs or drawings, and so on. Each issue contains 24 pages. Description courtesy of FEEFHS-Wandering Volhynians
The FEEFHS-Wandering Volhynians website has a summary of the history of the resource, from 1987-1999, when publication ceased. Clicking on the Index at the bottom of the page leads to an overview of the index, which is split into 4 sections and covers all editions of the Wandering Volhynians through September, 1996. Each section covers a variety of topics, referencing the volume and issue number applicable. Each index can be downloaded or printed and is an excellent tool for researching within this set.
