I am not confused -- I have been to "my" Andriivka. I was just trying to clarify which one Paul was talking about.
And, yes, the language is Ukrainian and is written in Cyrillic -- however, strangely enough, when letters are mailed to me from the village, the postmark from the P.O. is written with the Latin alphabet! Go figure!
Now, I am on the email adventure!

Austrian-Poland (Polish Galicia) now in SE Poland just across the
current Slovakia border.

There are a dozen or so place names Andriivka located in the Ukraine.
All these names would be written in Ukrainian Cyrillic.
