There are two Friedensdorf in Volhynia, best seen on Jerry Frank's map Q-2
In the Volhynia gazetteer they will be soon shown as:
Friedensdorf (Frydendorf/W of Oleksandrivka), Novohrad-Volynskyi, Zhytomyr,
Friedensdorf/Friedenshof/Frisowka (Frydrychowka/E of Vilkha), Romaniv,
The numbers are giving the coordinates as ddmmss N ddmmss E (d=degree
The present gazetteer on the homepage (downloadable as a pdf) shows the
country as "Russian Empire (Ukraine)".
The mentioning of a direction to a next village (W of and E of) indicates
that both villages have disappeared which you can verify with Google Earth
using the above coordinates but written "dd mm ssN dd mm ssE".
Happy Easter greetings from Hamburg
