Joseph, Thank you so much for the info on my g-grandfather. His original name was Busaad (not sure of the spelling) and he shortened it when he came to the US. Is Busaad also a Turkish name? My grandmother is looking for documents that he might have brought with him, but she's found nothing so far. I'll let you know if we locate anything. His bible was written in Hebrew and I'm hoping she can locate that. Greek Orthodox sounds about right. I think I remember my grandmother mentioning something about that religion when I was a kid. I will ask her again. She's in her 80's now and her memory skips around sometimes.
Again, thanks and good luck with your Saad relatives. There are some in MI where my g-grandfather settled. You might check there for yours. Dana
