Subject: Re: [Kresy-Siberia] Zofjówka/Zofiówka
Didn't you say at first that you felt this place was an osada/settlement? If it was begun after WWI, chances are you will not find it on an after-1940 map since it was probably destroyed by the Soviets.
However looking in my Galician Gazetteer, I see there is a Zofijowka, "see Torskie, administrative district Zaleszczyki." Could this be it? This was 1914 and prior though.
It's probable that the name of Zofjówka/Zofiówka derives from the Polish first name of Zofia which means Sophia or Sophie in English.
