Your ancestors were probably living in Kingdom of Galicia and Lodomeria which was under Habsburg crown.

Bolded names are in German most probably and other forms of these names seem to be written in Polish. These villages are probably around Lviv and maybe today they are part of Lviv since often villages very near cities are consumed by city once city gets so big. Lviv is pretty big and considering that much smaller Ljubljana consumed several villages i wouldn't be surprised if all those villages were consumed by Lviv but it is hard to say much.

Lviv is divided into six raions (districts), each with its own administrative bodies:

    Halych district (ukr. Галицький район – Halytskyi raion)
    Zaliznytsia district (ukr. Залізничний район – Zaliznychnyi raion)
    Lychakiv district, this sounds similar to Lyczakow (ukr. Личаківський район – Lychakivs'kyi raion)
    Sykhiv district (ukr. Сихівський район – Sykhivs'kyi raion)
    Franko district (ukr. Франківський район – Frankivs'kyi raion)
    Shevchenko district (ukr. Шевченківський район – Shevchenkivs'kyi raion)

Also i found out this;

Sounds like a plausible possibility as to why I can't find information by these names if they were later consumed by L'viv. 

About the family bit, oh yeah.. Know all that.  I have that entire document.  The gentleman who put that together, his daughter married into our family thru my grandfather's brother's son.  That's confusing. I've never met any of them. They probably don't even know I exist.  Stan should, as I've tried to write him a letter, wanted to get to know him and anything he might know.  He never wrote back and I even provided email addresses.  That's how my family is. No one talks to each other really, and if they do – you NEVER ask about our heritage. I've been shunned for it already. The family lore bit is actually true.  Kazimir (aka "John") did go back to the Old Country and marry Anna.  My dad remembers Anna, called her grandmother but biologically she wasn't. It's all crazy. Definitely doesn't make it easy either.

The Polish bit is part of the reason many people have mentioned that I should be looking in today's Poland not today's Ukraine. I can find many Lysakows/Lysakaws in Poland. Was suggested of a few options in Ukraine.  But still nothing solid that I'm aware of.  Kind of lost as how I should go about figuring it out since my own family isn't any help.
