Are you sure it is not Rußland (Russland) = Russia? Before WW1 most of 
Poland incl. Warsaw was part of the Russian Empire.

Subject: [Ger-Poland-Volhynia] Village Location

My grandmother's confirmation document lists her as being born in Rupland 
(b. 1896) yet elsewhere her birth place is given as Warsaw.

Would Rupland be a village nearby or a district within Warsaw ... or does it 
have another meaning?

To note, this was written by a Luther pastor in Alberta, Canada therefore 
accuracy suspect.
