I am hoping that through this web site I can meet my relatives in Brazil from the El Rassi family.
My grandfather is Youhanna Assaf Beshara El Rassi. The family name was changed to Beshara a century ago in the government records by mistake.
My grandfathers brothers and sisters traveled to Brazil many years ago; they are Jeryes, Salem, Salim, Bader and Salime; we have no contact with them and we dont know if any of them is still alive.
One of their sons visited our town Ebel Al Saqi before 2006 and he introduced himself as the grandson of Assaf El Rassi. We didnt meet him, because he was ushered to the wrong house. The daughter of his brother Nehme called Najat died in Barazil.
If you have any information please e-mail me at johnbeshara@live.com or call these numbers: 00.961.70.965700 or 00.961.3.236550.
