"The region of Volhynia -- in German, Wolhynien -- is in the northwest corner of Ukraine, west of Kyiv. It borders Poland to the west and Belarus to the north. Volhynia was the name of an administrative district, called a gubernia, before the Russian Revolution. Major cities include Zhitomir, Rowno and Lutsk. In the mid-1800s many Germans settled in Volhynia. This site will help you to research their ancestry."
This web page provides information for family researchers about this Hungarian village. From about four hundred German settlements in Hungary, Mucsi was one of only twenty-four which were repopulated after the 150 year long Turkish occupation. The new settlers were peasants and artisans from around Fulda in the Hessen province of Germany and were described as Stifollers - from Stift Fulda. They undertook the major part of the reconstruction of the almost entirely destroyed country and established a high standard of agricultural and industrial society. This page offers resources, census information, and historical information about the village.
