Given name Schewie/Schowe #general


I have some records with the given name Schewie/Schowe. The first spelling
is >from a Hamburg emigration record, the second is >from a New York
immigration record -- same person. She was >from Kobrin in western Belarus,
born around 1848.

I checked the Belarus Given Names Database and the closest match I can find
is Sheva. Could someone more familiar with Hebrew and Yiddish names please
let me know if you concur or have other suggestions?
