About the Schein surname

"Schein" family. Actually, I know very little about them, because  Marcus Schein was not a very likeable individual and not much of a grandfather, especially after he and Sophie Bergwerk Schein were divorced, when I was still very young. The only thing I know about him is that he was something of a yeshiva boy, as were his brothers. One ended up in Israel and another Sam, I think, ended up in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. I don't know if he had any sisters, he may have had one named Miriam, but I'm not sure, only an old photo with that name scrawled on it by someone. 

In the late 19th century and early 20th century there were at least 3 probably unrelated branches of Scheins in Olomouc 1. Simon Schein born Sept 10 1846 and died 4 Dec 1915, with wife called Josefine (born 1846 Jevicko). Their children were Karl (born 15 Jan 1872 Olomouc - died 7 Sep 1912 Olomouc) Antoinie (30 August 1875 Olomouc), Vojtech (Albert) born 18 Oct 1877 Olomouc and Isidor born 24 April 1882.

2.Moritz (also known as Moric) who moved from Slovakia to Olomouc in 1897. He had a wife Emilie and together they had 3 children. Their son Ernst (born 13 Nov 1902 in Olomouc) ended up fleeing to England during the war. Their twin daughters died days old, as did Emilie (in Feb 1907). Then Moritz remarried to Wilma who died of cancer in 1936. Then he remarried again to Helena who was on transport AAm in 1942, ending her days at Baranovici. Moritz died in Chvalkovice/Olomouc in 1941 after being stripped of his assets and moved out of central Olomouc.

3. Dr Vojeteck Schein with wife Ruzena and Son Hanus
