(Chomyszyn/Zachorko) Help Finding Torhew Village and Ukorci Village (Once part of Austral-Hungarian Empire)

(Chomyszyn/Zachorko) Help Finding Torhew Village and Ukorci Village (Once part of Austral-Hungarian Empire)

Hello,

My great grandfather was Paul Chomyszyn. My great grandmother was Katherine Zachorko. I am trying to locate their home villages in today's Ukraine. I have found the following information on a legal document. Unfortuantely, the village names no longer exist as they lived during the Austral-Hungarian Empire in the late 1800's. If you can be any help, I would greatly appreciate it.

Paul Chomyszyn
Village Torhew
County Zborin
Galacia

Katherine Zachorko
Village Ukorci
County Zoloczin
Then part of Austria

My great grandparents immigrated separately to Canada in the early 1900's where they eventually settled and met in Toronto, Ontario. I believe that Katherine may have been somewhere in the United Kingdom before coming to Canada for a time.

Thank you.
-Michelle
