My grandmother's family lived in Egypt, both in Cairo and Alexandria in the last century or more. Her name was Rachel Afif. Her father was Shebbeti Afif, a merchant, banker, and farmer. Her uncle was Eduard Pichoto. I believe he was a senator in the Eqyptian Senate at the start of the last century. Her brother Daniel was one of the secretaries to then King Fouad of Egypt. I guess that would have been in the early part of the 20th century. I am just curious about my family's history. Yours truly, Mike Hortens

I teach Arabic to Coptic students who used to live in Egypt or Sudan but now live in Brighton, in the UK. Their studies require them to know about the culture of Egypt and its history.

I found your website extremely interesting. I was born in Cairo, Egypt, and my family emigrated to Israel in 1951. The videos, sounds and music brought tears to my eyes. Even though I was a young child, I still remember those old days in Cairo.
Thank you for those memories.

My family left Egypt in 1956. Our journey was long and painful. We ultimately settled in Canada in 1957.

My name is Simon Hassine I was first President of AZA Cairo. You were good enough to publish our first and second bulletin for many years. I came to visit your web now and then and remember the good old days. Sadly, you seem to have erased our story altogether. Any special reason?
I would appreciate it if you would re-publish our story and I thank you in advance.

Ezra Isaac Sciama (son of Isaac Ezra Sciama, a stockbroker) married Ida Mizrahi (daughter of Yahouda Yehia Mizrahi, a merchant) on 14.March.1907 - the marriage was registered with British Consul General at Alexandria, Egypt.
A daughter, Jeanne Sciama, was born on 22.October.1910 to Ezra and Ida.
I would love to hear any details, from anyone, who may recognise these names.

I wish to announce to you that Levana Zamir, President of the Association for Jews from Egypt, in Israel, will be coming to the New York area. She will be at your synagogue in Brooklyn on Saturday the 23rd of November, 2013. I hope that you will look for her, and maybe you might have a smal Kiddush in her honor. She is coming to New York because she will be one of the guests at the U.N., at a special session entitled "The Forgotten Refugees", on Thursday the 21st of November, 2013.
So pleased that I had the chance to stop by and say hello. You have a very nicely assembled website. Just goes to show what hard work and dedication to a project does. It eventually pays off. Good job!

Never went back,never had the desire to do so
There were two branches of the Green family in Egypt. One in Cairo and one in Alexandria. They were descended from two brothers (originally called Ghren) who took Tuscan nationality between 1838 and 1842. The Alexandria branch were connected with cotton and were wealthy enough to found one of that City's major synagogues.
As a member of the Cairo branch I had always been keen to meet or correspond with a member of the Alexandria branch and I was very excited when a few years ago I talked on the telephone to Professor Andre Green (whose Wilkipedia entry is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andr%C3%A9_Green). Unfortunately his father who was part of the Alexandria branch had quarrelled with his siblings and, after moving to Cairo, lost touch with them. Sadly Andre died a year or two ago.
Does anyone know a member of the Alexandria branch?
I am originally from Alexandria and am looking for people I may have known. Maiden name Berro

I learned mcuh from reading "My Last Years In Egypt" and thank Joseph Hakim Pob. I have also recently read about the Jewish poplulation in Greece,(Salonika, Turkey, and Italy. My interest is in understanding or discovering what happened to my father and mother-in-law as young people, and why their families emigrated to Alexandria from Salonika and Istanbul respectively. Albert Sasson, my father-in-law stowed away on a ship at the age of 10 leaving Salonika for Alexandria because his family was slaughtered in Greece. As an orphan he grew up in Egypt, learned the trade of electrician and married Rose Gormezano whose family had emigrated from Turkey. Rose's father was a rabbi. Their son was my husband, Michel Sasson, who was a child prodigy violinist. He attended St. Andrew's school in Alexandria. He has recently passed away this past March. I would be grateful for any information about his family history. I teach Humanities at Tallahassee Community College and always include as much as I can in both the Pre-histoy to Baroque Humanities and the Baroque to Modern Humanities as I can about the Jewish peoples and their history starting with Canaan, in Mesopotamia and the Diasporas and Exoduses through WWII and beyond to what I know about the various groups, Saphardic and Ashkenazy. I work at promoting understanding and tolerance through a mutliculturalistic approach.

Thank you for your website. I have been researching my family's history and have not had much luck. My father Alain Silvera was born in Alexandria in 1930 to Sion Silvera and Vera Miloslavsky. He grew up in Alexandria and graduated from Victoria College before coming to the US and settling here after his education.
I have been trying to learn more about his life and my grandfather's life in Alexandria. Were there any other Silvera's in the community? I understand that they lived on Rue Bolanachi. Are there any other sources that you think I can find? I can be reached at my email (email@example.com) or by telephone in the US at 610-260-2604.
I am chronically sad about the barbarian crime of deporting egyptian jews out of their country, waiting for the pleasure of meeting some of you
