I need help understanding the origin of my name, my name is Jorge Bigit born in El Salvador, my grandparents came from Palestine to Central America and South America that was in 1910 they arrived in El Salvador. My grandfather’s name was Salvador Bigit Giacoman and my grandmother was Helen Selman Manzur. From what I know they were from Bethlehem and the parents of my grandfather, Jerie Bakhit Saleh, died 15th of July 1956 and Jamileh Elias el-Alam, born in 1889, Died in 1953. do not know if anyone knows if there are still family. In 1987 I visited my aunt in Bethlehem and is no longer returned to have none of it his name is Graciela Manzur Selman, but I thank you for some information on the family Bakhit and if they are related or are of the same family, as in El Salvador’s name is Bigit and the Family in Chile is Bijit. Thanks for your support or help to find out about my roots.Best regards,Jorge bigit
