Excerpt: Sielec (Ukrainian: ) is a village about 13.5 kilometers southeast of Sambir within Drohobych district of Lviv province in western Ukraine. The village was founded probably in the 15th century CE. To the north lies the village and forest of Side ( ), to the east Horodyshche ( ), to the south Mokriany ( ) and to the west Vilshanyk ( ). Geographically, the area lies in the Dniester river basin, to which the Bystrytsia ( ) and Cherkhavka ( ) rivers are tributaries. Together with the villages of Kotovane ( ) and Stupnytsia ( ), it administratively forms a local village council. The village was first mentioned in 1538 in a document from 1559.

According to historical documents, in 1880 Sielec had a total population of 781 inhabitants, of which 657 were Greek Catholics, thirty-two were Roman Catholics, eighty-five were Jewish, and seven were of other faiths. According to an 1889 census, 728 of the inhabitants at the time were ethnic Ukrainian (Rusyny), fifty were Polish, and three were German-speaking (Galiziendeutsche). Furthermore, the town incorporated 172 houses in the same census; the manor house (dwor) and local lords' e
