LONIAK appears to be Ruthenian aka Carpatho-Rusyn. And most were Greek Rite Catholics aka Byzantine Rite Catholic.

Many LONIAK are arriving at Ellis Is from Gologory, Galicia, Austria. This place may now be in Ukraine. FYI in the late 1700s the Polish Empire was divided into 3 parts with the west going to Prussia, the east to Russia and the south to Austria which was called Galicia or Galicy After WW I Poland was re-created but the eastern part went to Russia (Ukraine). Holohory, Gologory - Gologory - Gologori, Holohori - village between towns Peremyshlyany and Zolochiv. 21 km north east of Peremyshlyany. Name measn "bare mountains". Nearby it there is hamlet Holohirky (Gologorki).

Apparently Gologory is now called Hologory and the church records are available on microfilm for such a place from the LDS Church (Mormon) Family History Center. Here is what they have:

Title Księgi metrykalne, 1855-1858
Authors Kościół grecko-katolicki. Parafja Gołogóry (Złoczów) (Main Author)

Notes Mikrofilm zrobiony z rękopisów w Archiwum Państwowe w Warszawie.
Greek Catholic parish register of baptisms, marriages and deaths for Gołogóry, Galizien; later Gołogóry (Złoczów), Tarnopol, Poland; now Holohory (Zolochiv), L'viv, Ukraine. Text in Latin.

If you are not familiar with the Family History Center you will find one near you where you may order and rent the films for viewing at that center for $3.50 for a month. Here is there link:
