Homa Fatahi Kasili
My name is Amir Massoud Fatahi-Kasili, and I live in England/Nottingham.
I am searching for my sister (HOMA FATAHI -KASILI), who left Iran for U.S.A
in 1964 to study,and since early 70's we lost all contacts with her ,her
lost known address was in Houston Texas. I belive she married ,and her
husband name was Joseph Ottum. Many thanks if you can help.
Amir Massoud Fatahi-Kasili
This is going to sound like an extremely insane request and I am not
sure how to even begin to explain. I am an American citizen who has fallen
deeply in love with an Iranian man who is originally from Iran. Our love
story is long and involved, as are most, but in a nutshell, there are circumstances
beyond our control that keep us apart.
My need is to locate his family who reside in Tehran. What I know is
that they are an affluent family that own and operate one of the largest
companies dealing with the purchase and selling of raw copper. I know they
also own a mine of some sort (marble or copper--not sure) and that the
brothers of the family are in the final stages of fulfilling the deceased
father's last dream of building a mall in a place that is near an old graveyard
(I think or maybe an airfield) and the second half of their name is Rezaie.
The beginning starts with an S.
It is my soul's desire to be with this man, no matter what the cost
and somehow I just know that contact with his mother will be able to change
our situation. If you can be of ANY form of assistance, I would greatly
appreciate it: names, ideas, companies, etc. ANYTHING.
I know this has NOTHING to do with your line of work, but I am reaching
out to any and all that might be of assistance. I appreciate and thank
you from the bottom of my heart for your time and possible assistance.
Said and Sarah Khaksar
I am searching for Said and Sarah Khaksar of Tehran, Iran. Sarah is
my beautiful daughter that I have not seen in seven years. Her dad; Said
was my lifetime love. Many times people make mistakes and when they do,
they always hurt the ones they love most.
Said's parents are Javad Khaksar and Tayebeh Rastegar of Tehran, Iran.
I do not seek too do harm, but to make peace with Said. I want to be a
part of his and Sarah's life. I would like for them to either come to the
United states for a visit, or allow me to come to Iran to visit with them.
This is what I want more than anything in the world. If Said has found
a wife, I would only wish him happiness, and I would not seek to destroy
what God has joined together, but we are both parents to our daughter Sarah,
and she deserves to have both parents.
I pray that you would publish this, and that by some miracle from God,
Said will read it and respond.
I would greatly appreciate it. I am looking for Mr. Azizollah Sanai.
He used to be my teacher and school principal in Tehran when I was 10 years
to 14 years old. I used to go to Afrand elementry school in Tehran. I don't
remember the name of the street but the famous Andre sandwich shop was
at the corner of our street (with the famouse Olivieh sandwiches!). Mr.
Sanai was my mentor as a child. The moral values and principals I have
today all came from him.
I would very much like to find him and see him, no matter where in the
world he is. I just hope he is still alive and well. I had many dreams
about him over the years and went back to Iran twice just to find him with
no success. If anyone knows about him please tell him NAHID DEHGHANI still
remembers and loves him and would love to hear from him. My e-mail address
I have been living in Australia since 1983. I am looking for a friend
Dr Assad Iranpanah, who is residing somewhere in the U.S. I would appreciate
an email from him or from anybody else who knows him
My father's name is Abbas Vaziri and in the early 70's (1973-1975) was
stationed at Kelly Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas thru the Iranian
military. My mother's name is Alice Hernandez and he first met my aunt
on the base Lilly Hernandez when she brought him home to meet her family.
After my mom became pregnant, my father was going to marry her, but
for some reason he was put in prison in Tehran and was supposed to be released
July 2, 1975 and in his letters he expresed how much he loved my mom and
me. He says in his letters that he was going to meet my mom at the airport
on July 2 at 8:30 pm. My mom's address that he wrote to was 1515 Lamar
St San Antonio, 78202 USA.
I believe he continued to live in Tehran or maybe he stayed in prison
longer. The only kind of address I have is Iran, Abadan. I am now 23 years
old and was born on Feb. 15,1976. My father would be around his mid 40's
and about 6 ft.
It would mean everything to me if I could find him or anyone who knows
Michelle H Martin
I am looking for an old friend of mine from 1977. His name is Massoud.
I can't remember his last name, but he lived in Smithers, West Virginia
in 1977 and went to school at West Virginia Polytechnic Institute, located
in Montgomery, West Virginia. I have searched for many years but can't
find him. He lived in a small mobile home on the same street as me. My
name is Marie Fair. I was 17 when we met and his daughter who is 21 now
would like to meet him.
My name is Jochen Leffers. I'm living in Bochum, a city in Germany.
My girlfriend Hamideh is looking for a former school friend named Fariba
Nadimi. They both visited school in Narmak which is a part of Tehran. In
the year 1982 or 1983 Fariba left Tehran with her whole family. As far
as Hamideh knows they probably moved to London but this is not really sure.
Fariba Nadimi must be about 27 or 28 years old now. Her family is rather
large and she's probably the youngest child. We would be very thankful
for each hint about Fariba Nadimi. If anybody has informations don't hesitate
to contact me!

who was a pilot stationed in America in 1976. My father's first name is
Mohamed and last name starts with a Sajmi but, I am not sure on the spelling

Dr. Mir-Javid Jalali
I am an Australian who met Dr. Mir-Javid Jalali in1994 in Irvine California.
He was a great personal help to me in the business I tried to set up there.
He is a geophysicist originally and had a company called Espex, I believe.
It was in international bartering, the ship his company owned was the Espex,
until his fourth wife got that, I believe.
He was setting up an Inkeeper Business which was doing well in 1996
last I spoke time to him. He was a Mason as well as The Air Force and Navy
Reserve. All THIS AND I STILL CANNOT FIND HIM.
In 1973 thereabouts he won the Inventor Of the Year Award. I have filed
a Provisional Patent on a totally new product and was giving him first
look at there. He was a refugee from Iran I beleive with no money when
he landed in Western Australia. He left in four years with over one million
and as Aussies were so good to him he would help me. I would be grateful
for any help in this matter Dr Jalali.
I have been looking for many years for my lost father. His name is Kuros
Khazaei and he is originally from Tehran. He was last seen in England in
1961. My father was studying engineering at Canterbury Technical College
and will be 64 years old this year.
I am very eager to meet him, not so that I can profit from our meeting
but so that I might become sure of who I am and where I have come from.
I intend to visit Iran this year and I want to understand that of me that
sets me apart from those who have raised me.
I do hope that there is someone out there who can help me. I have been
adopted by my step father who was good to me but I have always hankered
after an understanding my own.
