The Tirschwells from Tarnobzreg,Galicia (now of Boca ) Updated December 1, 2002
About Our Family Research
We have successfully created (and uploaded to this website) a family tree of the descendants of Morris Aaron (Moshe Aharon) Tirschwell, who came to the US from Tarnobzreg, Galicia (now Poland, then Austrian-Hungarian Empire)in 1903.
Moshe Aaron (Morris) was the son of Chaim Yosef Tirschwell. We are most interested in learning about Chaim Yosef's parents, grandparents and siblings. We are also interested in learning more about Morris' 2 (?) brothers (we understand that at Ellis Island their last names were changed to Fields and Tischfeld).
My name is Rabbi Perry Tirschwell. I live in Boca Raton, Florida with my wife and five daughters.
We have been in touch with people with otherspellings of the last name (Thurschwell, Turschwell), but have yet to find the missing link between them and us.
