"Goroshki" is Volodarsk-Volynskyi today, in the Ukrainian language - Володарськ-Волинський. It is located 45 Km northwest of Zhitomir or Zhytomyr (Ukrainian: Житомир).  It is the administrative center of the Volodarsk-Volynskyi Raion. If I remember correctly, Goroshki was officially called "Kutuzovo" (Кутузова) until 1924.

According to Mychailo Kostiuk in "Die deutschen Kolonien in Wohlynien" (page 232), Krassnobyrki (краснобырки) is located in Volost Shchuryn (Щурин).  I have not found Krassnobyrki on a map, but you can find Shchuryn on maps.google.com by doing a google search on "Shchuryn".  
Kostiuk also shows Ossovez (Особець)as being in Volost Shchuryn (page 233).   

Incidentally, Kostiuk also shows a "Gorshki" in Volost Shchuryn.  You should ensure for which location you are looking, "Goroshki" or "Gorshki".

I am interested in knowing the name that you associated with Goroshki.  I was born in Goroshki.

Subject: [Ger-Poland-Volhynia] question re Lutsk land appropriations list

I've recently been perusing the Lutsk land appropriations lists in the
SGGEE members-only area, and need a bit of assistance. I've found several
names in the list that *potentially* correspond to relatives of mine, but
I'm having trouble locating the towns that are listed as their residences
-- even the SGGEE gazetteer isn't helping me locate them at all.

The places I'm having trouble with are *Osovez*, *Gorschki*,
*Krasnobyrki*(in all three cases the landowner's name corresponds to
one who also has
holdings in Apollonia, which is *exactly* where I would expect to find the
relatives in question); *Stawki* (which is in the gazetteer but I can't
find it on the map); and *Rogosniza*. There are two other listings for
which I don't have a problem; I located the towns without difficulty and
they're in exactly the right area.

Obviously, I know that just because a listing has a name (and patronymic)
that matches a relative of mine doesn't guarantee that they're actually the
right person -- but figuring out where the towns are would help me
determine whether they're useful leads or just coincidental but irrelevant
name matches. Does anybody know where those places are?
