I am looking for 2 lost or renamed villages in Ukraine. They were named Diamantheim and Ugartsthal in Galicia before the wars.

Diamantheim was a tiny village north of Velyka Turya. It was started about 1900 from a clear cut forest by a Mr. Diamond. On Google Earth there is a small village north of Velyka Turya with the name Zarichne attached to it but the name Zarichne is the name of the Raion and I am not sure this is the name of that village because if you search on Google Earth further north you see the name Zarichne attached to another village.

Ugartsthal was another small village just north of Sivka (Siwka)-Kalus'ka and west of Kalush (Kalusz). Wikipedia says that it was renamed Tespowo after WW1 and that it is now incorporated into Sivka. Just wondering if this is true and the northern part of Sivka is the old Ugartshtal.

Thank you,
