My name is Jessica Boustany, I'm from Sydney, Australia. I'm also very interested in the geeaology of the Boustany name. I don't use the internet often, but today (07/04/2000), I came across a publishing firm that claims to be founded in the late 19th century by, Sheikh Youssef T Boustany.
I know almost nothing about where the name Boustany originates from, but there are quite a few Boustany's/Boustani's that have immigrated to Australia, who are from my Father's village in Lebanon, Jieh (near Beirut).
If you have any more information, or would like to persue this matter futher please e-mail me.
