Welcome to the Abou Rjeily Family Website

Back to the main page

This site is the outcome of a research I conducted on the roots of my family a decade ago.

It consolidates information I gathered about the family from different sources.

The Abou Rjeily family initially originated from Mount Lebanon in the 17th Century and spread across the continents.

All Abou Rjeilys worldwide are the descendants of Atallah Abou Rjeily who lived around 1712.

Atallah had four sons: Elias, Farès, Yaghi and Dib.

Abou Rjeily name is spelled differently across the countries:

  • In Lebanon and Canada: Abou Rjeily, Bourjeily, Abourgely, Bourgely, Bourgeili, Bou Rjaili
  • In the USA: Bourjaily, Aborjaily, Abourjeily
  • In Brazil: Abou-Rejaile
  • In Cuba: Aborlleile
  • In Argentina: Aburllaily, Burllaile, Buryaile and Aburgeily.
