Don't worry!  Since you know what towns they came from than you already know more than many of us researchers knew when we began our searches.

Cernicvic may be today called:
Chernivtsi [Ukr], Chernevtsy [Rus], Kleyn-Tshernevits [Yid], Czerniejowce [Pol], Chernivitz, Cernivci, Cernevţi, Chernevtsi, Tschernewzi, Çernivtsi

Region: Podolia

Skora may be:
Skvira [Rus, Yid], Skvyra [Ukr], Skwira [Pol], Square, Skver, Skvere

Region: Kiev
Ozno may be:
Ośno Lubuskie [Pol], Drossen [Ger], Drossen Stadt, Ośno

Region: Prussia
