Michael Tudor from Hinelow Galicia - Need help please

I am trying to find where Michael Tudor was born- Sept. 11, 1870. I have information from Ellis Island that he came to America on Dec. 22, 1900. It says he was a resident of Hinelow, Galicia & his mother tongue was Ruthenian.
All of his other records say he was born in Austria. I am hoping that someone canhelp me find the town where he came from.

Thank you,
Donna

Galicia was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire so he would have been "Austrian" by citzenship and born in "Austria". Today Galicia is in either Ukraine or Poland and you will need to identify Hinelow and find what it is called today.

the church records stayed in the "Hinelow" Galicia.Austria.
But without correct spelling, I'm not able to locate this location in http://www.e-targ.org/Maps/galiciamap.html

ZlaticaBeca, may I suggest that the Ellis records have been misread/mis-transcribed--there is no dot over what would be the first "i" rendering it looking more like "Hr" or "Hm". Further, Fold 3 naturalization records for Michal Tudor, a typed version refer to "Hmielow", which doesn't exist either, but if one adds a "C" you come up with the Polish town of "Chiemlow".

Thank you jbgr56.
I have figured it out that the location is Chmielow, Podkarpackie woj. Poland and have posted the information to the poster's post on Poland's board.

I take it Tudor & Tudaj are not the same then. Nor are they close in geography. It was worth a try.

It was only a typed version. It wasn't the right birth date either but...you never know.
