What is the meaning of the abbreviation shin-yod followed with a slash after the boy's name, Michael, and same abbreviation follows the name of the Sandaq Eiziq. Mohel Benjamin Bing refers to Sandaq Eiziq as "my uncle (dody) in line 2. In another record for Oberseemen, dating to 1803, Sandaq Eiziq's patronymic is included: "son of Moshe." Mohel Benjamin's epitaph states he too was "son of Moshe." Eiziq (Yitzchaq) Bing from Oberseemen was my great-great-great-grandfather. He had a son named Moshe, and at least one grandson by that name. I am hoping that the Shin-yod abbreviation has some relevance to my genealogical research.
