Hello, Abdulbaset. The Shanbour surname is very rare in the United States. The Shanbour surname is found mainly in Oklahoma, USA mainly. Family tradition says Alexander, Samuel, and Julia's original last name was Chambrod before coming to the US. How or why the name change is unknown,with possibly the immigration official misspelling the name. The d in Chambrod is silent, so it sounds like Shanbour. I am still researching the Shanbour name. I met Nassem Shanbour from present day Israel earlier in 2005. His
grandfather was the one who changed his name to Shanbour.
Let's keep in touch in researching Shanbour roots.
