Just a quick follow-up. All papers pre WWI regarding anyone who listed 'Jabal Lubnan' as a place of residence were entered under 'Syrian' nationality or 'last place of abode or residence'- Syria. I've perused documents at the Library of Congress, etc. Even when my grandparents emigrated to this side of the world, papers read that the port of exit was 'Beirut, Lebanon, Syria'.
As for Hamanna - time for me to pull out a map!
