Where is FAUSTINOVO? (KIRSCHBAUM Family)

Hello! I am looking for information pertaining to a village or farmstead named FAUSTINOVO (or FAUSTINOWO, FAUSTINOW, FAUSTIGNOW, ...) which according to mapquest.com, calle.com, and other map sites is located at a latitude of 51 55' 60N (51.9333) and a longitude of 23 48' 0E (23.8000) in Belorus near BREST:

http://www.mapquest.com/maps/map.adp?country=BY&city=faustinovo

Judging by the depiction of the maps, FAUSTINOVO should be located half way between the communities of Stradzecy (Stradech) and Masevicy (Masevichi), but there is nothing but forest?

My great great grandfather Gottlieb KIRSCHBAUM (a jeweller) and his wife Wilhelmina SCHENDEL (b. 1859, d. 1925) used to live there until around 1910-1915 when they emigrated to ROSENORT and AUHOF farmsteads in the BRAUNSBERG district of East Prussia, Germany. Their son, my great grandfather Wilhelm KIRSCHBAUM (b. 1891, d. 1979) was born in FAUSTINOVO along with his brothers Edward KIRSCHBAUM (b. 1893, d. 1930) and Emil KIRSCHBAUM (a minister) and his sisters Olga KIRSCHBAUM (b. 1897, d. 1968) and Auguste KIRSCHBAUM.

ANY information about the fate of FAUSTINOVO and/or my great great grandparents and family will be most welcomed by the branches of the KIRSCHBAUM descendents on both sides of the Atlantic!
