Your town is definitely the Galician town of Gwozdziec, now called Hvizdets in Ukraine, located at coordinates 4835, 2517 about 19 km ENE of Kolomyja. This town had a famous wooden synagogue. The painted ceiling and timber-frame roof of the synagogue was reproduced for the core exhibition of POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews. See

If you are interested in the Jewish vital records for this town, please contact me privately at mark@....
