In talking with my father, the very small village is Ruzdwiany (sp?) likley located closer to Ivano-Frankivs'k, which I now see has come up on some notes of my grandmother. The Ternopil area also comes to my parents minds as the same was talked about in the conversations. So I stand corrected that the village would be to the east of L'viv.
As to the translation of name, I would have to research, but did view the British passport to which they were able to gain entry into Canada on.
