May I suggest a village called Dobra in Kreis Turek in Poland - about  60 Kilometer NW of  Łódź und 130 Kilometer south of Posen?
The German Wikipedia site gives more info than the English
There were many Germans from here that moved to Wolhynia. And in reverse in 1940 with the resettlement of Germans from Polish Wolhynia.  My father's family (Kukasch) was settled here in the spring/summer of 1940.
There is also a village called Dobre in the Kuyavian-Pomeranian Voivodeship, or Kujawsko-Pomorskie Voivodeship in Poland.
There are also a number listed here http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dobra  but it would be hard to confirm your placename without more info.

There has some discussion about the Petrikau records which you may have 
followed.  However, so far no one has dealt with your Volhynia 

The Lutheran Churches in Volhynia no longer exist so there is place to 
write to for more info.  Some of the records have been archived.  Those 
that are known and readily available for access have all been extracted 
and data is available in our VKP database at:


Be sure to read the descriptions on the search pages so that you are clear about what is or is not included.

I cannot find a Dobrekuth in modern day Poland.  There is one (Dobrokut) located south of Ternopil in Ukraine, formerly Galicia.  This region would have been part of Poland for a brief period between 1919 and 1939.
