[Ger-Poland-Volhynia] Schowtobrod

My detailed map of the area only shows Sheltyi Brod about 1 km SE of 
Protowka Neudorf and Stribeshskij Brod another 2 km to the east.

These appear to be the only villages in the region with the Brod 
suffix.  According to my dictionary, a brod is a ford.  My map shows 
several streams joining together to form the Stribeshkaja River near by 
which later flows into the Scheika River.  These locations must represent 
points where these streams can easily be crossed.  It may be that Schowto 
is reference to one of the unnamed streams on my map.
