Armenian city of Van.
The surname may originate in “SOIAN”, which
would have been added to the first name SOS.

USA branch
Several individuals are listed as having arrived to the United States at Ellis Island in the early
1900s. These include:
Thomas Sissoyan (from Batorum, Turkey), arrived April 4, 1908 (25 years old)
Hovaness Sissoyan (from Marseille, France), arrived Nov 23, 1920 (25 years old)
Hacgas M. Sessoyan (from Harpouth, Turkey), arrived April 16, 1912 (21 years old)
Arakel Sissoyan (from Keghi, Turkey), arrived June 22, 1913 (38 years old)
Sahag Sosoian (from Van, Turkey, arrived January 23, 1911 (23 years old)
Ellis Island arrivals can be consulted at www.ellisisland.org
A Google and Facebook search of the name SISOIAN reveals numerous Americans
with that name (as of April 2008).
Baghdad / Middle- East branch
MARKAR Sosoian seems to be the patriarch of this branch, but it is very unclear.
This is not Markar, son of Garabet
He is the Confirmed brother of Vahan, ancestor of East-Armenian / Georgian /
European branch
Likely ancestor of Masis Vartan Sosoian, born in Baghdad in 1968 – P.O Box 941605, Amman
11194 Jordan.
Another includes Karnig Sosoian, who lives in Jordan; grand father name: Tavit / father's
name: Vartkes, originally from Iraq.
Istanbul branch
Name unknown - Confirmed brother of Vahan, ancestor of East-Armenian / Georgian /
European branch. He died in 1920-21 without children / Inheritance was lost.
Fedeyeen branch
SHASHO Sosoyian (born in Sevkar, 1861) – Fedayeen (revolutionary militia) leader
He took part in the Khanasor expedition as a corporal, and other expeditions in the 1890s. In
1899, he commands a unit of 15 men sent from Baku to Van (lost 3 men).
CONCLUDING REMARKS
It is likely that Garabet and Boghos were brothers, and cousins to Markar, Vahan and the
unknown ancestor of the Istanbul branch. The relationship to members of the USA branch
(Sahag, also born in VAN) and other branches remains unclear.
TREMBLAY ROOTS
The Tremblay name is the most widespread French name in Québec and North America. It
dates back to Medieval France and the year 1167, when the name Gervais du Tremblay was
written for the first time. All the Tremblay’s in North America can trace their roots to the same
Pierre Tremblay, born in 1626 in Randonnai (France) and arriving in New France in 1647. He
died in L'Ange Gardien, QC in 1687. His five boys (total of twelve children) and their children
spread his name throughout North America.
