Twiasschor roots in Kolomiya

Twiasschor roots in Kolomiya

I am trying to sort out the various Twiasschor lines and locations. 

First, the correct spelling is with the German eszett, or double-ess, character. Thus, the real spelling is Twiasßchor. Many times, even in Germany, the eszett is not used, and thus the name is sometimes rendered Twiasschor (with two esses) and sometimes Twiaschor (with one ess).

Various other record registrars and/or family branches have written it Twyesschor, Twischor, and other variations. As I wrote in an earlier post, the name derives from the rabbinical Schor family and the title of a religious book by one of the Schors.

There are clusters of Twiasschors in several Galizianer towns—Tarnopol and Skalat in addition to the bunch from Kolomiya.  None of those are very far apart in modern-day Ukraine, but if we look only at records for Twiasschor family members connected to Kolomiya, we find three interesting death records in the 1890s for a Mindel, Rebeka and Izak Meyer Twiasschor.

If any of those were parents of Pinkas and Dina Twiasschor, that might bear on the question of the yourger generation's relocation to Berlin at the end of the decade. 

There is also a pretty puzzling anomoly. There are marriage records for Pincas Twyesschor and Dina Twyesschor (note the spellings), both dated in 1891. In that year, the Pinkas we know about was nine years old, and his sister Dina was also still a girl. So the 1891 records seem to be for a different Pinkas and Dina. I guess the names ran in the family.

Just for fun, there is also a Twiasschor branch that ended up in Rio de Janiero. And there is another set of sibling Twiasschors who were in the furniture business in Berlin.

There is not yet enough clarity to draw any conclusions.
