1908 Syrian-American Business Directory
This 256-page directory was a voluntary register of Lebanese-American business owners that presents the name of
the owner(s), their business type and its address, and where they are from in the Middle East. With over 3,300 entries, the directory provides substantial information on Syrian and Lebanese immigrants who lived in America in the early 1900’s and how they contributed to the American economy. It also tells us their gender, their geographical distribution within the US, as well as the village and town from where they came. You can search this directory in English or Arabic (if you have Arabic language enabled on your computer).
