Trying to find my grandfather's family

Hello,
I am trying to find information about my grandfather, Otto Mueller, and his family. He came to America in 1912. On his emigration papers to America he said his country of origin was Russia. In the 1930 census in Columbus, Ohio where he and his family lived at that time he said his country of origin was Poland. I have been told by a friend that he may have lived in the area of Volhynia. I have also been told this area is presently part of Ukraine.

I am sorry that I am not very smart about this part of the world. My grandfather Otto Mueller was born in 1894. Otto's fathers name was Gustav Mueller and his mother's maiden name was Eva Movak. Otto's parents did not come to America. Otto married Olga Mathes here in America in 1920. Olga's father and mother came to America to live sometime in the 1920s. They were Valentine Mathes and Ida Laube Kanewski.

Thank you very much for your assistence. I hope to visit your county someday soon.

Hello Craig,
Otto Mueller was born on 7 Feb. 1894 in Boza Wola / Wladimir-Wolynsk. Father: Gustav Mueller, Mother: Eva Moneweg (Mornhinweg). Gustav and Eva moved to Volhynia 1881-1882 from the Radom area in Poland, as their daughter , Mathilde, was born 1881 in Wladislawow / G. Radom and died on 8 Jul. 1883 in Ekaterinow /Wladimir-Wolynsk. Other children of Gustav and Eva:
Johann-*28.9.1882 Ekaterinow, + 21.3.1884 Boza Wola; Wilhelm-*28 Nov. 1884 Ekaterinow; Augustine-*21 Jan. 1887 Boza Wola; Otto-*7 Feb. 1894 Boza Wola; and Eva-*19 May 1889 Barbarow / Wladimir-Wolynsk. There probably were more children, but to find them , you would have to research the Radom area records before 1881. These records were found in the SGGEE database, which can be accessed online for free on their public database.

Hello Craig,
Margarethe Olga Mathes was born on 1 Dec. 1898 in Muntowka / Wladimir-Wolynsk. Father: Valentin Mathes, Mother: Ida Helene Louise Laube. Valentin and Helene Louise Ida (name order different on the marriage certificate) were married on 17 Nov. 1892 in Antonowka / Wladimir-Wolynsk. Valentin's parents were Peter Mathes--Elisabeth Reinberger. Ida Helene Louise only had her mother's name given--also named Ida Laube, so apparently Ida Helene Louise was illegitimate . No father's name was given and she took her mother's surname. If you want to research that side of the family further, yo can go to the SGGEE database online .
