Janine Eaton (Ayoub mothers name) |
My grandfathers name was Jack Ayoub (now found out it was Fudallallah Ayoub. His Fathers name was Ayoub Yasbeck. My grandfather Jack was born in Sweir in 1882 and came to Australia on the German Steamer The Hasburg in 1899 arriving at the Port of Melbourn and then residing in Coonamalbe N.S.W. He had a brother Naif. In 2006 I went to Shweir and visited the Moujais family who live in the house where they say my grandfather was born. It was very exciting and i hope to return one day soon. I had two Uncles who visited Shweir during the 2nd World War.
We have a lot of family in Australia as Jack had 10 children and Naif his brother had 13. It is only now we are all finding out more of my grandfathers life. My mother is 75 years and her name is Josephine Eaton.(Ayoub).

To the Bulletin Board ' Words fall short of expressing my sincere gratitude and appreciation to all workers at El Shweir web site, particularly Miss Samar Kiama, for the warm reception and generous hospitality during my visit. I am touched by their deep-rooted attachment to this cherished part of Lebanon. I wish them all the success'.

hi. My name is Aline and i'm Gerges and Rosette Arbid's daughter.i must say i haven't been away from Lebanon for a long time (only 4 months) but it surely feels longer.. i recently got married in the US and i live in L.A., California. i just wanted to congratulate everyone working on updating this website because it truly is impressive and i cry every time i check it cos i can smell Dhour el Shweir and its greatness. i love California cos it reminds me so much of my country and hometown and hopefully i'll be visiting Lebanon soon, and definitely Dhour El Shweir, which i last visited in December 2005. i miss it sooooo much.. keep up the good work guys..

Shweir.com Note: -  Hello Danny,
So where are you in California? There are many Sawayas and khneissers or Khnaisser or Khonaysser or Kenicer... lots of spellings, in Norhtern California, near San Francisco. Khneisser has sub family name like Eid, Shaya, Nasr, Nader etc. Do you know your sub family name? When did your family move to California? You can read more about people from Shweir by clicking on the "California and California2" from bottom of Shweir home page.
Again welcome to your home town web page. I will put your email address in code to minimize spam.
