Sorry to be a bit slow in getting around to checking on this, but there is a
Franzdorf listed on Karl Stumpp's Verzeichnis der deutschen Siedlungen in
Ukrainisch-Wolhynien (in a 1962 Heimatbuch).  It gives another name for the
village as Freinwald, and says "see Adamowka".  Under Adamowka, the
alternative name is given as Freienwald, rayon Pulin, Kirchspiel Heimthal.
The location is D-5.  Sure enough, on the Stumpp map, in D-5, there is an
Adamowka about 5km southwest of Pulin.
