Hi! I think it's INCREDIBLE there's a SHWEIR site! BRAVO!
I am the grandson of Salim Katul. My mother is Magdalene Sumayya Katul. I'm 38 and a dance teacher. I teach Modern/Jazz and Belly dancing in Sodeco Square, Beirut, Lebanon. I spent all of my childhood in Dhour Shweir and Shweir running up and down those famous steps that connect them. I used to REALLY enjoy nature there, especially singing to a full moon with the wawees howling in the background. I used to help Jiddo Salim in his garden. He loved to tell me stories of his childhood during the first world war. 'Sigh'! All that's gone now, but Shweir is still there!

I'm Bint ElShweir (Bint George and Asmahan Chammas(Bou Kheir)) and have been in the US (for almost 20 years). I miss my hometown (Dhour Shweir). The last time I visited was 7 1/2 years ago with my husband and Daughter. I hope to be able to come back and visit this coming summer with my son/daughter and husband.
I love checking out your website almost every day. I love the recent snow pictures. I really miss it all and the snow. I live in San Diego - California and it's very nice and warm all year long. The website is great. Keep up the good work. Love, Micha

Probably our 2nd decade (the sixtees) is the most bright part in our memory where we were young and so warm with life. Those were the days I have passed in that dreamy paradise of jabal Lebanon known as Dhour Shweir !
I was a member of one of those Iraqi families who used to spend summer time in Lebanon, almost every year as a sort of pleasure and entertainment. No wonder, Dhour Shweir was that pleasant resort out of the whole country and no wonder , hotel Eid was the place where we feel at home !
Last time I had the chance to be there was in 1972 and since that time , it is there in my mind and feelings. It is the place where my spirit flys and swings over as a splendid oasis in my life, it is the memorial city where I keep wishing my self to be there , retracing the memories surrounding the place as the memory of Nemat Shadid Yafith in the Baladitah square, Al Hawy cafe , ABC stores, Radio city cinema and Halaby Tennis Court !
If you be kind enough, tell me what s happend to Hotel Eid ? I haven t noticed any thing about in your website location, what about the hotel owners especially Kamal Jerjis Salim Eid Khneiser, his sister Rimona and their niece Mary ?
Your answer will be deeply appreciated.

Does any Matar know the history of the Matars of Dhour-Ishwair? has any of them left for Syria about 150 years ago and settled in latakia? Has any of them settled in the Druze Mountain of southern Syria around the same time?

Hello! I would like to find out more about my family history. My grandfather was George Corban and I understand that he was born in Shweir in the early 1900's before emigrating to New Zealand as a child. I hope to visit Shweir in June of this year and would love to meet some long lost relatives.
