I am looking for information on the families of my great-great-grandparents on my paternal grandmother's side.

What I have is this:
Rafoul KANAWATI of Lebanon married Helen, also of Lebanon. They had three daughters: Afifa, Labiba and Nazle (or Nazleh), and three sons Antoun, Nagib and Yusef.

Afifa KANAWATI married John ABCARIUS, also of Lebanon. They had four sons: John, Nasib, Amin, and Michel, and two daughters: Nelly and Alice.

Yusef KANAWATI moved to Egypt where he married Nada ZEIREK or ZEIRECK (b. cir. 1885). They had three children: Alice-Helen (my grandmother, 1909-1994), Albert (b.1912) and Dora (1919-1996).

The parents of Nada were Rizkallah ZEIREK (or ZEIRECK) and Faridah, both from Syria. They moved to Egypt where they had three daughters: Chefia, Marie and Nada, and two sons: Elias and one whose name I do not know.

I know of the families of my great-aunt Dora and great-uncle Albert, but not of the larger KANAWATI or ZEIRECK families.

Any help would be appreciated.
