HELP... need info on surname Samaha, from Jauaar
Posted by: Gwendolyn Meade Date: November 01, 2001 at 09:33:32

My Father's surname is Samaha. His family is from the area of Jauaar(sp?) Lebanon. His mother's maiden name was Monsieur (sp?), also born in Lebanon. Although my father was proud of his heritage, he never spoke of his parents or grandparents. I know that his mother and father died in Louisiana. My father and his brothers and sisters were all born in Louisiana. That is the sum total that I know about his family background. An allied family is Shaheen. Does anyone know anything about the surname Samaha? I know that most of the records in Lebanon were probably destroyed long ago, and the only hope for ancestral info would be by word of mouth.
