Using Google do a search using Drabovshchyzna and then a search
One of the Drabovshchyzna sites is a travel journal.
Maybe you'll get something worthwhile.

Asking my Mom to spell something from 1940's and even the documents like the social security applications I have gotten here in the US have spellings all over the place. I took what you gave me on the web site the city Samojlovszczyna and went the next step. The village I found where I think my Mom was born is DRABOVSHCHYZNA the 52N 26E longitude & latitue are close and the spelling looks like what my Mom told me phonetically. She said she lived near a church on the corner. I looked on the internet for information of Drabovshchyzna and found none. I want to confirm that it is a village and perhaps pictures or a write-up about it. Where do you suggest I go further for this information?
