My grandfather, Friedrich Knoll, was born in Volynia on February 4, 1892. He emigrated to Canada in 1912, apparently leaving by ship out of Bremen on May 18, 1912, accompanied by his parents, a brother and two sisters. His father’s name was Adam Knoll (born 1862).
Unfortunately that is about all we know about that branch of our family. We would love to learn more and are looking for any information or resources that could help us.
My understanding is that Volynia now covers parts of modern day Ukraine and Poland. We don’t know what part of Volynia or what town/village they may have come from. ... Any information or assistance you could provide would be greatly appreciated.
