Titanic Arabic Passengers ??

   I have written a book concerning the Syrians who boarded the Titanic in April 1912. Of this group of passengers, there were some men who came from Bint Jbeil (along with a few from Tibnin). Although the book is written, I am still seeking added information or anecdotes to complement the entries of these passengers. I do have information on these passengers but would however like to hear from descendents or family members of these passengers. Any type of information concerning their families and circumstances would be of great assistance. I would like to complete their entries in full. Please feel free to contact me at my email address. (

I would like the story of these Arabic speaking passengers to be told. 

Thank you
