Przybylski, Szarek from Tracing Konopnica, Zimna Woda, Lwow district - my grandfathers family

Hi, I'm just starting to research my grandfather and his family and I am stuck already.

I've got a town for where he was born but I am getting conflicting information when I enter the name into any search engines.

All I have is the information from his marriage certificate to my grandmother.
The village name is Konopnica, ZimnWoda, and the district of LWOW. (This is from a British marriage certificate)
Can anyone help with whereabouts this could be, or what i could enter into a search engine? or if it is even in Poland anymore? as I know it has changed alot.

(The only place I got was near a town called Skulsk, but it just showed an empty space, no name of a village, on multi map)

If you have a LDS centre near you, you should be able to rent the parish microfilm to search for your family name. Or you could get someone in the Ukraine to check their archives or perhaps even visit the village and make enquiries on your behalf, take pictures and make a video.

My Grandfathers name was Przybylski, and his mothers family name was Szarek.
I have my grandfathers date of birth and as you can see in the earlier posting, i know what village he was born in. Would anyone be able to point me in the right direction of how to trace the birth records of someone born outside the UK?
