Posting this message here as there is no message board for Syria and hoping someone may be able to help. My grandfather Phares/Feras Asaff came from Arong(?spelling)around the turn of the century, married in Nova Scotia in Jan 1908. His birthdate is questionable and may be between 1870-1881. The place he came from he said was located half way between Damascus and the mountains (Mt. Hermon?) His parents were Joseph and Phida and he had a twin sister- he called her Barbara - who died shortly before he left home. He sailed to Canada with his cousin Joseph Asaff but they only kept in touch for a few years. Joseph may have returned to Syria. Would appreciate any info
about the family or where they lived. Thanks
