I just read an article, an interview w/Roman Fedorchak, current mayor of Nebyliv.

According to the mayor there are several legends how Nebyliv was founded, one of which is that the selo/village was founded by Lemkos, a micro-ethnic Ruthenian/Ukrainian
group. Last year a Nebyliv Middle School Teacher took her class on an history hunt in Rozhnyativ. They found nothing. (I hope someone told her to try Kalush.)

He mostly wanted to talk about the general conditions in the village. To date only 1/3 of Nebyliv is gasified. There are major infrastructure problems: water pipelines to the village need replacement and all inter-village roads are in very poor condition. Apparently the cost of engineering expertise is prohibitive for the village. Last year Nebyliv received under one million USD to clean and light the village and generally prepare for all the distinquished guests from Canada for the festivities re 160 yr anniversary of first emigrants leaving for Canada. Many of their own laborers w/construction expertise are working as migrant workers in the oil industry across the world, in places like Poland, Italy, Algeria, Argentina and Brasil. He says that he is very grateful to the Canadian business community for not forgetting its roots and helping gethings better organized and updated, but the actual labor will have to be done by the villagers themselves. Nebyliv Villagers understand that their lives are a combination of paper laws and real every day life.
