I'm looking for my grandfather who migrated to Brazil around 1930s, his name is Mahmoud Chahine. I believe he worked in the coffee industry in Sao Paulo.

I am seeking an address in Brazil where he lived. He emigrated from Lebanon and I believe he was born around 1890. His father's name is Hammady and his mother's name is Sikna.

    Welcome to G&FH SE! As a new user be sure to take the Tour to learn about our focussed Q&A format which is quite different from bulletin boards, discussion forums and other Q&A sites you may be used to. What country did Mahmoud emigrate from? When was he born? – PolyGeo Jan 22 '17 at 21:00

    The answer on the duplicate is for the right time period (1808-1940) and mentions the state of São Paulo too so hopefully will give you a starting point from which to commence research and then frame a more focussed question, if you need further help. – PolyGeo Jan 23 '17 at 3:15

I could not locate one specific Mahmoud Chahine, but honestly did not go over all records. If you did not give a try yet at FamilySearch, do it, there are several records for Chahine from Lebanon arriving at Sao Paulo.

I tried specifying parents name using the data you provide but again was not successful. I would not rely in filtering by parents in an initial search, though.
