Gesher Galicia SIG #Galicia Looking for information about Blotnia #galicia

Hello fellow travelers,

I'm having some difficulty in finding information about a place in
Galicia called Blotnia (alternatively, Blotnya or Bolotnya or Bolotnia).

It's at 49 degrees 33 minutes N, 24 degrees 41 minutes E, according
to the JewishGen Gazetteer.

Blotnia is not listed in Gesher Galicia's town directory. It was
apparently a place with a very small Jewish population. It's still on the
map today, just a little to the northwest of Narayev, Ukraine. I would
be grateful for suggestions as to how I might be able to find some
basic information about it, such as its population, industries, history,
and so forth.
