Linda, I think that the "Liessapol" you are looking for would most likely be Lasopol a.k.a. Lessapol. It is located at the coordinates 50.50'N 26.26'E, 5.7 km SSW of Kostopol. If you are a member of the SGGEE you can find it on Jerry Frank's map F3 of Volhynia. Or else you can go to this site:
where you will find it shown as Kol. Lesopol in the lower right-hand part of the map.
Hope this helps.
