I presume that the village is no longer in the place where it once was due
to either destruction during a battle (Second World War) when the German
Army was retreating from the Russian advance or possibly due to
collectivisation after the War.

My mother's village of Solomka consisted of 3 Strassendoerfer (street
villages): Nakoty (Mom's), Szredne and Goncharykha (Honcharykha) - all with
the main name of Solomka.  Today, only Solomka (Goncharykha) exists.  The
other two were razed.  At one point in time, the village was known as
Friedrichsdorf.  Both Nakoty and Szredne were mostly settled by Germans,
whereas Goncharykha had more Ukrainian villagers.  And since the Germans
were resettled to Warthegau in 1940, these two other villages would have
been abandoned and destroyed.    The village is just southeast of Zhyl’zha

I did find all the villages on a map located on the www.mapywig.org
website, but as Jerry Frank found when he visited his ancestors' village of
Friedrichsdorf (Solomka), the two other villages were gone.  He wrote about
this in an issue of the Journal.

I would presume that similar situations occurred in other areas
