at the time that they left, or shortly thereafter, Lebanon was part of Syria.

Lebanon was part of the Ottoman Empire for over 400 years, in a region known as Greater Syria, until 1918 when the area became a part of the French Mandate of Syria following World War I. On September 1, 1920, France formed the State of Greater Lebanon as one of several ethnic enclaves within Syria.

I believe my relatives call themselves Syrian but they were actually from the area that became Lebanon.
