Twist Parish Emigrants
Surnames:  A - Z

The list below is of emigrants who have entries on this website
and represents
only a fraction of those persons
who actually emigrated from Twist parish.

To link to a fuller entry for anyone named below use the surname index.
The last update made to the list was August, 2009.


Nieuw Schoonebeek became a parish ca 1850. After that date, persons born there were no longer baptized in Emsland. Nevertheless, some emigrants born after 1850 in Nieuw Schoonebeek who had parents or grandparents born in Emsland will be included on the website.
Adorf in neighboring Grafschaft Bentheim was part of the (religious) parish of Twist, Emsland
Persons born in Twist before 1799 were often baptized in Gross Hesepe, sometimes in Meppen.
