I am seeking any surname history, relations or family history and wish to share info I have with anyone on the following names:


My ancestors are from the Urmia region of Persia. They emigrated to the U.S. in the early 1900's and am having a difficult time information on their time in Persia and the Azerbaijan before emigration.

I have been told repeatedly by my elders that we are "Assyrian Christians" however just recently found @ Ellis Island Records, my great-grandfather on a passenger list of the Graf Waldersee (1909)which states him as Persian Hebrew!! Oh boy...another avenue to research.

Any suggestions, tips, hints, relatives - please contact me!
