How did Modryn come up? Did any of your relatives mention it? If not, then I
would say that it does not play a role here. As I have mentioned before, it
is quite possible that if Rulik�wka, as you suggest and its name also
suggests, was a small Polish village, it may no longer exist at all. Many
small villages of predominantly ethnic Poles in the Eastern Borderlands were
razed to the ground either by the Russians or by the Ukrainian Nationalists.
You will probably need the services of someone like Slav Carynnyk to find
it. He has helped some of our members to find the locations of their
ancestral villages in such circumstances.

of Poland and does anyone know where the land ownership records for
Rulikowka from 1939 are now held?
Thanks for that but I am still a bit confused as the town of Modryn marked
on the 1939 map you kindly sent me is now in Poland whereas other members of
the group are arguing that Rulikowka is now in the Ukraine.
See link below showing location of Modryn in Poland and nowhere near Lvov:
