As it turns out, your husband Raymond and my father are third degree cousins... The information I have is slightly different but I think we have the same people. Here's what I have:

TANNOUS Jerjes Makdissi, died in 1905 in Fiah. His children: MIKHAIL, Jerjes, Katrine, Hilene and another daugther.

MIKHAIL married Amelia Fayad in Fiah and had: Katrine, Nqula, Nora (married Nicholas Jacobs and went to Crystal Falls, MI), TANNOUS (also known as Antonious) and Simon (went to Cuba).

TANNOUS was born in Fiah on 2 January 1898. Had three children: John, Michael and RAYMOND. All moved to Omaha, Nebraska. One of my father's cousins from Argentina, AFIFO JORGE, lived for some years (1920-23) in Omaha, aparently with this family.

Too bad you can't ask your husband for more info! I guess I'll wait until after Christmas. I was recently in Escanaba, MI, with descendants of Nora Makdissi Jacobs (Raymond's aunt) and we are trying to piece together the family tree.

I'll be home on Thursday and I'll send you Rafaat's coordinate then.

Best regards,

Nelson Jorge
