Hi, Looking for information about the Yasbek branch originally from Latakia, Syria. Particularly in finding a contact there interested in helping track down the family line.Nami Yasbek, 25, occupation barber, and Bedra Yasbek, his wife, age 21 arrived in US in 1908 and settled in Washington, DC. His brother back home in Latakia was Michael Yasbek.
Related to the Bashoor family from Latakia, Syria. Caterina (Katar) Bashoor, Maifa (Naifa) Bashoor, Najla Bashoor, Lawretta (Laura) Bashoor and Elie Bashoor all came through Ellis Island using the Yasbek surname instead of Bashoor and indicated they were joining Namy Yasbek. John Eassy Bashoor entered US through Angel Island California via New Zealand and also joined his cousin Namy Yasbek, who sponsored him. All ended up in Washington, D.C.
