Dear Alyssa,
I got your name from ancestry.com. My name is Edward Kassabian and i was born and raised in Philadelphia PA. My father and mother came from TURKEY 1920 to USA. I remember my father was telling that when he went, into exile from Diyarbakir in Turkey that his older brother (Karnig Kassabian) got lost, he had tears in his eyes. With him was his uncle and younger brother Souren. They managed to get to the Syrian border and finally to the US.

Their sister virgin made it to Iraq where she married Dikran and we all re-united in Philadelphia in 1950s. but their brother Karnig got lost and for years , we looked for him. Please let me know if you learn anything more about Karnig Kassabian

God Bless you,

Edward Kassabian

Surnames: Kassabian, Bouldoukian
(Reposting--don't know what happened to my first reply)

My father's maternal uncle was named Karnig Bouldoukian. My father's surname is Kassabian. Not sure if this is the same one but they lived in Beirut when I met "Karnig Dayi". This was in the late sixties/early seventies.

Also, as I mentioned in a separate post, my father's mother's family is from Adana.

Hey uncle eddy it's Patrick (2nd oldest of the five boys) I also was trying to find information on here about karnig and seen your message. I hope we can find out one day where he went or if he had kids and so on... How have you been? The last time I seen you was at uncle Sams house when I was a little kid. My grandpop told me a while back he talked to you and you were doing good. We are all doing good on this end and I hope you will vist us again soon it's been too long. Well god bless you and I hope you get this message.

if we are looking for the same person i am on a facebook page that is armenians of sudan i can post a message to see if anyone on there would remember him or his family most of the people that post on the facebook page are 30-70 year olds. someone on there knew my great aunt and my great uncle. i am not sure how popular kassabian surname is but i have only heard it a few times. i am almost positive this karnig i knew of was living in sudan with his parents. when my grandma knew him he would have been in his late teens to early 20s
