My mother's father, >from Odessa, had the surname "KOIRE" (as in "baal
koire", reader of the Torah). I've seen it written in Russian but I'm
not sure of the spelling in Hebrew and Yiddish, I wonder for ex if the
last vowel would be rendered differently in Hebrew and yiddish (by an
ayin in yiddish maybe) and if the "i "added in the yiddish version (>from
kore to koire) is only pronounced or written as well. This question
arose because in some records the name was transcribed as "KOIRA"
whereas I'm sure that the "correct" version was KOIRE.
Thanks to all for your help.
