Dear Mr. Bussab, I saw your inquiry. Unfortunately, I have no information on your family but I have been trying to establish contact with someone in the Lebanese community in Brazil for quite awhile. I collect old envelopes mailed from Lebanon up to 1920 and I know that many People went from Lebanon to Brazil between 1890 and 1920 yet I have only seen two envelopes sent to Brazil: one from Betater to Mr Salim Zaidor in Mococa in 1914 and the other from Shartoun in 1898 to "Jorge Mourao & Irmao" in Lage de Muriahe(E. de Rio). Do you know anyone who has saved any old envelopes from this period? I cannot under- stand why there are not more around.Do you think that no one bothered to save family letters? I would like to have your opinion.
