Find Your AncestorsArabs Who Lived in New York City, 1880-1900
Linda K. Jacobs
Below is a series of spreadsheets listing the first Arab immigrants to emigrate to New York City in the late 19th Century. Linda K. Jacobs created these databases as part of the research for her book, Strangers in the West, which tells the story of the Syrian colony on the Lower West Side of Manhattan, where America’s first Arab immigrants settled between 1880 and 1900. This is an invaluable resource for Americans of Arab descent who want to trace their roots.
