hi brother,i noticed your message and thought i could give a little help.my name is soyful and my ancestors are also from sylhet.i studt sylhet history in my spare time and look at friends family trees.

you said your grand father was from sylhet,but you need to be a bit more specific.was he from sylhet dristict or sylhet town.which part of sylhet was he from,did he migrate else where,if so where and when.if he migrated out of bangladesh e.g before 1940s there may be a good chance that he was well known as only a few thousand sylheties were abroud then.

a bit more info on your grandad may be helpful

I really appreciate the response, I know very little about this side of my family and it's my namesake. Nur Edris Alli died in 1955 when my dad was 15 so I don't have anyone to ask questions to anymore. My dad remembers very little about his dad.

I did get some papers from immigration so this is what I found out. I'm not sure on what part of Sylhet, I only know it says on his papers, it was Sylhut, B.E. India. His dad is listed as both Tetu Mea and Tetu Miea and his mom is listed as Shaban Bebe. On one other form, he listed he was from the province of Assam.

He left Calcutta in 1924 and arrived in Baltimore Harbor on May 15, 1924. He listed the ship he took as the Bulkin Loranga.

On another form, he listed that his birth name was Idris Alli and he added the Nur after arriving in the U.S. He wasn't sure on his exact date of birth but he heard from his dad it was January 1903.

I also know that he had a sister that was still alive there in 1952, but I don't know her name. I guess it would be possible we still have family there.

I know this isn't much, but let me know if I can look through the paperwork for anything else.

I really appreciate your offer to help. If you want to email me direct, my email is

Thanks again!
