Hi Genners,

This message is for Susan who asked about the name Shabsha.

A famous person in Jewish history was Shabbetai Zevi,(various spellings),
who thought he was a messiah (how appropriate for today).
You will find an article about him in the Encyclopedia Judaica or any other
history book on 17th century Judaism.
Your name Shabsha sounds like a version of this first name. It is a good
name, not necessarily with negative connotations. It was usually given to
someone who was born on the Sabbath.

Re: Meaning/origin of given name 'Shabsha' #ukraine

Prof. G. L. Esterson <jerry@...>
 

Susan Curelop of Seattle,WA posted as follows:

"Has anyone come across the given name of Shabsha? I haven't found it on
JewishGen's given name database and would like to find some information or
origin of the name. It came >from our great grandfather, and then father."

The Yiddish diminutive is linked to the Hebrew name Shabsay (Ezra
10:15). There are many other similar names which are also derived from
this Hebrew given name, such as: Shabe, Shabse, Shabshl, Shabsl, Shaps,
Shapse, Shapshl, Shepe, Sheps, Shepshl, Shepsl, ....... The Hebrew name
Shabsay also forms a legal double name with several other linked Yiddish
names: Sheftil, Sheftl, and Shepsil. These would be found in Gitin
(Jewish divorce contracts) as Shabsay hamechune (called)
Sheftil/Sheftl/Shepsil, and he would have been called to the Tora in an
aliya as Shabsay Sheftil/Sheftl/Shepsil.

In doing research of Shabshe, Susan should also be on the lookout for all
of these names, all of which could have been used in one archival document
or another.

Did the NY Times record immigrant arrivals at the port of New
York during the year 1889? If so, how can I access those archives
to check on the arrival of a family member on a particular day
of that year? Thank you, please respond privately.

From where comes the surname Zimmak? #general

Fred Zimmak <Fred.Zimmak@...>
 

Hi

I wounder >from where my surname ZIMMAK comes from.

When I saw what Michael Bernet wrote about Shimche it became
very intresting. I remember that when I took my BarMitzva, they
named used Simche as last name.Is it correct to assume that
Zimmak and Simche is the same?

My great grandfathers name was Wolff Zimak. He was burried in
Gilgenburg, WestPrussia (today Poland, Olsztynskie, Dabrowno)
sometimes after 1884. I don't know where he came from. But
for some time lived there and his proffesion was tradesman
("Kaufmann" in german). He was married to Julie Simson and
they had a lot of children in Gildgenburg. Most of the
children died during war.

The children spelled Zimmak in different ways: Zimmak, Zimak
and Zimack. With Z I have not found many people with the same
name. But Starting with S there are rather many.

Quick Way To Jump To Last Page Of Manifest?? #general

Joan Parker <housemom@...>
 

Dear Genners,

If I recall correctly, I have read when there is an X next to
the passenger's name it meant that they were held....and the
reason for being held is on the last page of the manifest.
Since we don't know how many pages there are in that particular
manifest, let alone the page number, is there a quick way to
get to the last page?

Shalom,

Dear Genners,

Just a reminder.

from time to time a request is made to the group how to get
records >from such and such a place. Our wonderful genners
provide the information, but some times a vital piece is
missing: ie: they can be reached by email....Wonderful, but
if you know they can be reached by email, please give us the
email address. Or in another case: I sent a letter and it
took x-amount of time for them to respond. Again, that
information of how long it took to get an answer is valuable,
but having the snail mail address is more valuable.

Thank you for your welcoming message.
Please permit me to point out what I believe to be an error in e-mail
addresses they as presented on your web pages and in your e-maul
messages.
At present, the way in which addresses are written is
mailto:gersig@lyris.jewishgen.org. My ISP would not accept the address
in that format. I eliminated the [mailto:] and everything worked fine.

I have also noted that in your e-mail to me, you listed may address as
mailto:ruthnlee@juno.com . Please revise your procedures by eliminating
the [mailto:] preamble.
Thank you, Lee

MODERATOR REPLY:
Thank you for your suggestion regarding the formatting of Email addresses.
I should remind you here that if you intend a message to be posted to the
GerSig Forum you must sign it completely as I have signed this note below.

For your information, many Email systems create a "hot link" when an email
address such as mine: gersig@aol.com is preceded by mailto:

Other systems do so when the email address or the Internet address (URL) is
enclosed within brackets such as: <gersig@aol.com> or
<www.jewishgen.org>

For those whose Email systems provide this shortcut, a single mouse click
on the email address or Internet address (also called URL) will launch the
web browser and go to the website or create a blank outgoing email message
pre-addressed to the hot linked Email address.

If your system does not provide such "hot links" you will have to cut the
Email address or URL >from its source and paste it manually into your web
browser's address bar or into the TO: field of a blank Email message.

When you do so, you must omit the mailto: or the <brackets> since these
are not part of the address but rather a code which can save time and
effort for those whose systems provide "hot links."

My own system does NOT provide hot links but I don't find it any trouble
to remove the <brackets> and / or mailto: syntax.

We will continue to use this syntax for the convenience of the many GerSig
subscribers who are able to take advantage of "hot links."
