which lists her point of origin as "Gliniana". That name, "Gliniana",
also appears on a couple of documents relating to my great
grandfather. Looking at old maps of the area surrounding Lemberg, I
have seen a few mentions of a village named "Glinna", and I also
know there is a town called "Glinyany" nearby. Beyond that, I've hit
a bit of a brick wall.>>

There are two possibilities:

There is a Glinianka in the Nisko /Ulano area in Poland, which is
probably not your town given its location. It is much more likely
that it is, as you write Glinyany, which is in Ukraine.

Glinyany is one of the new towns that is part of phase 2 of Gesher
Galicia's Cadastral Map and Landowner Records Project taking place
at the end of September and it has qualified for a matching grant
from GG.
As a start, an inventory for both maps and records will be created
for all new towns. Depending on the funding in each town's account,
records or maps will also be obtained. To learn more about the
project go to our web page. If you'd like to contribute to this
town's project, the information is all there.
