Re: genealogy of BARAKAT ou BARAKET Family

In Reply to: genealogy of BARAKAT ou BARAKET Family by Kamal BARAKAT of 3600

Hello,

All I know is that the Barakat name does have something to do with the Helou family. My father's full name was Maurice Barakat Helou, Sr. It seems that there was some sort of family fued and at least two generations back (in Lebanon) the Helou family split with some sons & brothers keeping the Helou name and the rest taking the Barakat name. My grandfather and my father kept the Helou name while several of my father's brothers took the Barakat name. Other than that, I have no other knowledge of the Barakat family or its relation to the Helou family. L. Helou
