Looking for Sarnek, Voln. (literal from brith act) #ukraine

I have used the Jewishgen tools with no success.
A birth act in ROHATYN in 1911 says grandparents were from "Sarnek, Voln." which I guess might be Volinia (sp.)
The handwriting is very clear.
Any help to locate this place ?
Thanks in advance
