In reviewing birth records, I have located the first name "Szyja".
Everything else points to the fact that this would be my great grandfather,
but this is a first name I am unfamiliar with at the moment.

My great grandfather was known as "Yehoshua" and "Osias".

I checked the Given Names Database and did find "Schaye/Sheya" that seems to
correlate with "Yehoshua" and "Osias". There is nothing spelled close to
"Szyja" that I could find.

Would I be right to believe that this means that the "Szyja" I found w/ the
correct spouse, etc. could likely be my great grandfather?

Thank you for your time,

Debbie Raff
