S & R Chernoff <s.r.chernoff@...>

I have recently been told that one of the surnames that I am
researching, TABISZ, was derived >from the name TOBIASZ which in turn
comes >from the Hebrew "towi-jjah". I apologize if I have misspelled the
Hebrew phrase. I was also told that the name has been around since the
1500s in Poland albeit undergoing several changes over the years. Is
there any one on the list who can confirm or deny this statement? Please
reply privately unless you feel the response would be of interest to the
list. Thank you in advance for your help.
