The Hebrew Name Yeshaya #galicia

Milton Goldsamt

I found the discussion of the Hebrew name Yeshaya/Yeshayahu very
informative. Just as Professor Esterson's Jewishgen Given Names
Data Bases web site shows, my grandfather Samuel's Hebrew name was
Yeshaya, which I found "different," and now I know more about it.

Now if I could only find his passenger manifest for when he arrived
in this country, likely into New York in 1889: perhaps he was
Yeshaya Lemel (not Samuel Lewis) Goldsamt then too! (I've spent a
lot of time at Steve Morse's web sites and still no luck!)
