Rand,

Istsia is not listed in Galicia towns records.
It could be Usts'ye, pron. [uhs tsyeh]? Polish name of this town used to be
Uscie or some sources show Ujscie, which translates as an outlet (of the
river).

Vialalge of 800 people was (is) located in Zydaczow district near town
Mikolajow on The Dniester River. ShtetlSeeker identifies this town at 4931
2355 . On my detailed Ukraine map it is shown on the location where Shirka
River empties into Dniester River.

There is another town known in the past as Uscie nad Prutem in Sniatyn
district of Kolomyya (Kolomea) area. This village had some 1240 residents,
is identified by ShtetlSeeker as
