Re: NEMER FAMILY, FROM RASCHAYA..NEED INFO.

Adele,

In the research I have done, I haven't seen the village Hamanna come up. Do you know what part of Lebanon this village is located? My family is from the Bekaa and actually I have learned that the last name, Kaleel, may not necessarily be our last name. I visited Lebanon last summer and found that their was no Kaleel in my grandfather's village of Rachayia. Typically, kaleel is spelled Khalil. I learned that my great grandfather's FIRST name was Khalil. So i'm thinking that's where our last name came from when my grandfather came in 1905.

Sorry I can't help you. Good luck with your search!
Sonya
