Searching for LIEBERMAN and APFEL families from Zolkiew (near Lviv) #ukraine

I finally solved an enduring family mystery. My grandfather, Samuel (Szulim) LIEBERMAN, came to the U.S. by himself in 1907. He refused to speak about his childhood, and we knew absolutely nothing about his family. After years of searching, I found his birth record this week, along with vital records for much of his family. He was born in Sept. 1886 in Zolkiew (now Zhovkva), about 15 miles north of Lviv. His father was Meier LIEBERMAN, and his mother was Szyfra Brandel APFEL. Szyfra died from a postpartum infection a few days later. His father subsequently married Feiga HERMAN from Uhnow. I've been able to trace my grandfather's APFEL line back to the late 1700's (other family surname - REIZFELD), but I'm still trying to trace his LIEBERMAN line. Is any of this familiar to anyone?
