Hello,

My ancestors were from the villages of Urmia, Persia. I have been told that they lived in Diza or Deza and Ardishai (sp?). Before residing in Persia they were from Assyrian villages in Iraq, but I don't know where.

They left Persia during the genocides during WWI era and came to Ellis Island, stayed in NY a short time and settled in Philadelphia. Eventually some made their way to California.

I am seeking family members for any of the following surnames so that we may exchange histories, recipes, and family photos, stories...
PEARAH
PEARA
SHALITTA
SHMON
WALAD
YOUSEF
YONAN

Any replies or exchange of information is most appreciated!

Best wishes,
Christy Shalitta Hooper
