  • Thank You. And Sorry, I will copy/paste the same answer I wrote in the previews comment because it's the same situation.

    I already checked this document; I am more concerned about his name before he became Ernest, he might have been called Anees or Anis, so I need his full name, especially his father's name, which I can't find anywhere (online).

    It would be great If I could find any information about his trip from Damascus to Jamaica between 1898-1900 and later his trip to New Orleans.
