Hi Brian,

I'm not making any promises, but here's something.

Try this, go to this link:

http://www.kami.net.pl/kresy/

Then try your village names with these spellings: Bilmony and Subotniki

When it shows a search result for a village, you can click on the village name, and a very detailed map will appear. You then can click to zoom out.
I did this , and can tell you that Bilmony is 20 kilometers southeast of Subotniki, and doing a search for Berezyna puts it east of there.
They all appear to be in the same general vicinity.

I read somewhere that the maps displayed there are from the late 1920's - 1930
